1901 - Cy Young of Boston scores his 30th win of the year, a 12-1 dismantling of the Nationals.
1915 - The Nats George Dumont debuts with a bang, whitewashing visiting Cleveland, 3-0. Both of Dumont’s 2 victories this season are shutouts.
1941 - A 3-6 triple play (Mickey Vernon to Cecil Travis) and his own bat helps Sid Hudson to a 2-0 win over the Tigers at Griffith. Hudson scores twice for the Nats and collects his 6th win of the year over the Bengals.
1947 – The Senators drop a home Sunday doubleheader to Detroit. In the opener, Tigers rookie Vic Wertz cycles and scores 5 times and George Kell pounds 4 safeties as Detroit piles up 16 runs in a 16-6 rout. Wertz crosses the plate twice in the nightcap, an 8-4 Tiger victory.
1955 - Herb Score of the Indians strikes out 9 Senators to break Grover Cleveland Alexander’s rookie record of 227 strikeouts, but Score does not get a decision in the Nats, 3-2, win. Washington’s Ernie Oravetz‘s run scoring single in the bottom of the 7th is the crucial blow, which hands Cleveland reliever Ray Narleski his 1st loss of the year.
1962 - Shortly after his hearing on his disorderly conduct charge, Jimmy Piersall is knocked unconscious in his Baltimore hotel by a revolving door. While Piersall nursed a headache that evening, Senator bats remained slumber in a home game with Chicago. The pop gun Sens offense musters only 3 hits off Chicago’s Joel Horlen in a 2-0 loss.
Fred Allen Green B Sept. 14, 1933 D Dec. 22, 1996
Except for a very short stint with the Senators, the lefthander was the property of Pittsburgh for the duration of his 5 partial seasons.
Green would appear on the roster of the Senators in 1962 after being claimed on waivers the previous September. In 5 games, all in relief, Green would go 0-1 with an ERA of 4.79.
