Frank Lange from the Chronology
Jun 4, 1912 - Behind the pitching of "chunky" (Chicago Tribune) Frank Lange the first-place White Sox top the A's 2-0. Veteran A's outfielder Danny Murphy shatters his kneecap on an attempted steal. He will be out the rest of the year and the injury will effectively end his career.
May 8, 1912 - The White Sox beat Washington 7-6 snapping Walter Johnson's five-game win streak. Johnson gives up two 2-run home runs one to Harry Lord in the 1st and another to Ping Bodie in the 5th. A Johnson fastball breaks the arm of 3B Lee Tannehill an injury that will hamper the infielder's throwing ability and ends the career of the 10-year veteran. Sox starter Joe Benz leaves with an injury after pitching 1 1/3 inning; Ed Walsh pitches the next 5 2/3 innings allowing 3 runs and Frank Lange allows the same in his 2 innings.
May 27, 1911 - At Chicago Cleveland and Chicago battle to a 5-5 tie after 9 innings before Ed Walsh takes over in the 10th. The Naps rattle him for two doubles and a run and ace rookie Vean Gregg who takes over in the 8th holds on for a 6-5 win. Frank Lange strikes out 10 Naps in 9 innings but gives up 9 hits and five walks. Joe Birmingham has three hits to pace Cleveland.
