Carl Weilman from the Chronology
Jul 17, 1991 - In a 15-inning 9-8 loss to the Royals Sam Horn of the Orioles becomes the first non-pitcher to strike out 6 consecutive times in a single game. Pitcher Carl Weilman of the Browns was the only other player to have the dubious distinction performing the feat on August 25 1913. Striking out six times labels a batter a "Horn" a term Mike Flanagan will coin in the July 29 "Sports Illustrated."
May 2, 1956 - Twenty-five Giants and 23 Cubs appear-a ML record-in a 17-inning marathon finally won by the visiting Giants 6-5. The two teams combined to intentionally walk 11 batters a ML record with the Cubs contributing 7 of the free passes. Losing pitcher Jim Brosnan chipped in with 4 walks all intentional. Cub 3B Don Hoak was not one of the strollers whiffing a NL record 6 times-all against different pitchers (Carl Weilman in 1913 set the ML record with 6 strikeouts in a 15-inning AL game) while Ernie Banks Willie Mays and Wes Westrum are twice walked intentionally. There are 8 unintentional walks for a total of 19. Whitey Lockman starts in LF goes to 1B returns to LF and finishes at 1B. Ex-Giant Monte Irvin is 0-for-5 against 5 pitchers. The game is 6 minutes shy of the 5:19 record set by the Dodgers-Braves in 20 innings in 1940.
Sep 20, 1920 - Carl Mays stops the Yanks 4 game loss streak with a 4-3 win over the Browns. Ruth tallies the winning run in the 11th inning for NY giving the Babe an AL-record 148 runs scored. Cobb had 147 in 1911. Ruth doubled off Carl Weilman in the 11th after striking out twice on slow curves.
May 23, 1920 - After a week in bed with illness Babe Ruth returns to belt a two run homer in the 6th off Carl Weilman to give the Yankees a 3-2 win over the visiting Browns. Baby Doll Jacobson's two run homer in the 4th is the only Browns scoring off Bob Shawkey.
May 30, 1914 - At St. Louis the Browns and Tigers combine for just 11 hits in a doubleheader. Detroit's Harry Coveleskie tosses a one-hitter in the opener to win 2-1. The Tigers manage 4 hits off Earl Hamilton. Carl Weilman then wins for the Browns in the 2nd game 2-1 outpitching Miles Main. Both pitchers allows just 3 hits with Sam Crawford collecting two of the 3 Bengal bingles. The Tigers miss Ty Cobb sitting with a cracked rib who will not return until June 5th.
Jul 25, 1913 - A 15-inning 8-8 tie game between St. Louis and the Nationals is called for darkness. Reliever Walter Johnson fans a ML record 15 in the last 11 innings but he hits rookie catcher Sam Agnew with a pitch breaking his jaw. Browns P Carl Weilman sets a ML record by striking out 6 times. He becomes the first player-but not the last-in history to strike out 6 consecutive times in a game as Johnson gets him 4 times and Joe Engel and Long Tom Hughes once each. Johnson's strikeout mark for relievers will last this century before another Johnson breaks it in 2001.
