Bill Walker from the Chronology
Sep 4, 1935 - The Cards score 4 in the 8th then Dizzy Dean picks up a save in the 9th to beat the Braves 5-3. Jess Haines who fails for the 11th time to win his 200th game is lifted after 7 for Bill Walker who promptly tees up Wally Berger's 30th homer of the year. Walker gives up two hits but is the winning pitcher.
Jul 8, 1935 - The AL continues its All-Star Game reign winning the 3rd event at Cleveland's Municipal Stadium 4-1. Jimmie Foxx is the hitting star with a homer and 3 RBI. Lefty Gomez goes six innings for the win while Bill Walker takes the loss.
Jul 31, 1934 - When the Cards and the Cubs resume playing the protested game of July 2 at Wrigley Field Chicago still wins. The final score this time is 7-1 instead of 7-4 with Lon Warneke winning over Bill Walker. Warneke allows one hit in 2 innings then continues in the 2nd game winning that as well 7-2. Paul Dean takes the loss. The outcome of the replay does not change the standings since the Cubs win has already been entered into the official standings but the individual performances in the replay replace those in the original game.
Apr 12, 1932 - In the Opener at the Polo Grounds the Phils chase Bill Walker in the 2nd inning and rout the Giants 13-5. Chuck Klein's bases-loaded triple is the capper in the 7-run outburst. Starter Fidgety Phil Collins goes all the way for Philadelphia and is 4-for-4 at the plate.
Jul 18, 1931 - John McGraw is ejected from a game in St. Louis after he rages over an out call by Bob Clarke on the Giants Chick Fullis. Behind Bill Walker the Giants win 4-0. A telegram McGraw receives before the next game causes another tantrum as NL president Heydler fines him $150 and suspends him for 3 days his first suspension since 1921. Dave Bancroft will fill in.
