This Date in Washington Senators History – Senators win 14th in a row
1912 – The streaking Sens win their 14th in a row. With Clyde Milan stealing 5 bases in 3 innings, Washington hands the Naps their 6th straight defeat with a 13-8 victory.
1922 – A 5-0 lead with Johnson on the hill should mean doom for the opposition. But George Sisler and the surprising, 2nd place Browns are up to the challenge. Sisler’s grand slam paves the way for a tough, 7-6 defeat for the Big Train and the Nationals in Sportsman Park.
1963 – The Sens and the Indians lock horns for 19 innings at Cleveland. Willie Kirkland of the Tribe ends the long tussle with a leadoff home run in the bottom of the 19th for a 3-2 Tribe victory. With Kirkland also homering in the 11th, he ties Vern Stephens ML mark with 2 extra inning homers in the same game. The loss sends the hapless Senators on a 10 game losing streak.
