Bob Chipman from the Chronology
Aug 9, 1950 - At Boston Bob Chipman tosses a 4-hitter to beat the Giants 3-2 ending their 8-game win streak and handing them their 2nd loss in 19 games. After 3 wins Jim Hearn loses his first game as a Giant after being acquired from St. Louis. Bob Elliot has a pair of doubles for Boston driving in the tying run and scoring the winning run. Elliot shrugs of the distracting techniques of Eddie Stanky who stands near 2B and waves his arms as Dave Koslo delivers.
May 30, 1945 - Before the biggest Wrigley crowd-42565 paid-in 7 years the Giants top the host Cubs 8-6 in the opener and Mel Ott passes Honus Wagner's career total of 4888 total bases to set an NL record. Wagner's has since been adjusted to 4868 and both players' totals have been passed. Slim Emmerich is the winner over Ray Prim. The Cubs take the nitecap 11-2 behind Bob Chipman's 3-hit win over Bill Voiselle. Andy Pafko clouts a 3-run homer in the 3rd. It's Voiselle's 2nd straight pounding after winning his first 8 games.
Jun 11, 1944 - In Pittsburgh Chicago's Paul Erickson stops the Pirates 5-0 and newly acquired Bob Chipman follows with a 1-0 win. The Cubs score in the nitecap comes on rookie Tony York's 6th hit of the day: he'll have just 20 hits in this his only ML season.
