1916 (Last Red Sox/Dodgers franchise) W.S. clash) Notes

October 22, 2018

The Red Sox and Dodgers are meeting for just the second time in World Series play, the previous clash in 1916.

Boston won that series in 5 games with #’s 1,2 and 5 played in Boston, but not at Fenway Park.

Yes, it was at the larger Braves Field, that Boston clinched a second straight title and fourth in 14 possibilities, behind Ernie Shore’s pitching in game 5.

Once, Shore replaced a pitcher, whom I believe walked the first batter, argued with the umpire and was ejected from the game.

Shore then retired all 27 batters he faced, hurling a perfect game.

The pitcher that was ejected was Babe Ruth.

Babe hurled 13 straight shutout innings, starting his famed streak of 29 scoreless innings in World Series play, after allowing a first inning run to Brooklyn in game 2 of the 1916 World Series.

He got the win, hurling all 14 innings, still tied with two other games as the longest in W.S. history.

Boston (9-3) in previous W.S. openers went up (2-0) with that 14 inning game 2 win.

The White Sox rode Geoff Blum’s 14th inning home run in game 3 at Houston to a (3-0) World Series lead en route to a 4 game sweep and their first title in 88 years and their only one now in 101 years.

Kansas City (Royals) got a game tying home run, B9 of game 1 2015 W.S. from Alex Gordon and won the other 14 inning W.S. tilt, en route to a 5 game triumph vs the New York Mets, in the 2015 World Series.
