Jul 4, 1932 - In Washington Yankees C Bill Dickey breaks Carl Reynolds' jaw with a punch sidelining the Senators OF indefinitely. Reynolds bowls over Dickey on a successful squeeze play in the nitecap. Dickey is suspended for 30 days-supposedly the length of Reynolds' recuperation-and assessed a $1000 fine. Reynolds is hitting over .360 but will end the season at .305. The Senators take both games from the league-leaders winning 5-3 and 12-6. There are 5 homers in the nitecap as Ruth Lary Crosetti Manush and Harris connect.
Aug 25, 1931 - At Chicago the Yankees record their first shutout of the season when Herb Pennock blanks the White Sox 6-0. Ben Chapman has a good day with a triple single 2 runs scored and his 50th and 51st stolen bases of the year. In addition he beats the Sox Carl Reynolds in a pre-game 100-yard dash.
Aug 31, 1930 - With a chance to pick up a game and a half on the leading Cubs the Giants edge the Braves 4-3 in the opener a doubleheader before 40000 fans at the Polo Grounds. In the 2nd game Mel Ott hits a double and 3 consecutive HRs to drive in 6 runs but the Braves counter with a homer by George Sisler and two by slugging rookie Wally Berger among their 18 hits. Ott is the 4th major leaguer to hit 3 straight homers joining Goose Goslin (August 19 1930) Carl Reynolds (July 2 1930) George Kelly (September 17 1923) and Cap Anson (August 6 1884). The final score is Boston 14 New York 10.
Jul 12, 1930 - The visiting Yankees use a 6-run rally in the 8th inning to beat the White Sox 11-6 and gain a split on the day. Chicago wins the opener 11-7. In the 2nd game the Sox score 4 in the 7th but reliever Red Ruffing stops the attack. Leading off the 8th inning Ruffing sails a homer into the RF stands to start the New York rally. Babe Ruth his 3 day suspension over collects three singles in the two games. The New York Times reports that "during lulls in the activity small children raced out into left field to shake hands with him provoking the umpires' displeasure." The hitting honors for the day belong to Chicago's Carl Reynolds with seven hits including two doubles and a homer. His three-run homer in the first game occurs when Harry Rice can't hold his long fly ball then overthrows 3B. Smead Jolley adds a homer and triple in the opener as Chicago unloads ten runs in three innings to back Ted Lyons pitching.
Jul 2, 1930 - Carl Reynolds of the White Sox hits 3 consecutive HRs in three consecutive innings (the 1st 2nd and 3rd)-just the 2nd player to do so-and drives home 8 runs in the 2nd game of a doubleheader at Yankee Stadium. The Sox win 15-4. Two of the HRs are hit inside-the-park in the 1st and 3rd innings. The feat is second-billed as headlines tell of Ruth tearing a nail off his finger on the OF screen trying for Reynolds' 2nd homer. In the opener Ruth has 2 hits including his 31st homer in the Yanks 5-1 win. Roy Sherid allows just 3 Sox hits.
