Joe Moore from the Chronology
Sep 18, 1954 - The Giants Don Mueller collects his 200th hit an inside-the-park HR making him the first Giant to get 200 hits since Joe Moore in 1936. Willie Mays also has an inside-the park-HR as the Giants beat the Phils 8-1.
Sep 23, 1940 - Despite stranding 11 runners in the first 7 innings Brooklyn beats the visiting Giants 3-2 scoring 2 in the 8th and 1 in the 9th. Dolph Camilli homers into the CF bleachers with 2 out in the 9th. Winning P Tex Carleton relieves in the 9th with runners on 2B and 3B and one out. He intentionally walks PH Joe Moore to load the bases. He sprawls snagging Johnny McCarthy's popped bunt attempt for one out and then scrambles to 1B to complete the unassisted DP
Jun 11, 1940 - In the 2nd of two Paul Dean debuts with the Giants and beats the Cubs 3-1 on 4 hits. Joe Moore runs his hitting streak to 14 games when he belts an 8th inning homer off Claude Passeau. The Giants win the opener 4-0 behind Bill Lohrman to pull within 1 1/2 games of the Reds and Dodgers. Bill Lee is the losing Cubs hurler in that one.
May 17, 1940 - Chicago's Stan Hack is struck by a foul line drive off the bat of teammate Hank Lieber and suffers a concussion. Hack was the runner at 3rd base and in foul territory when he was struck. The Cubs top the host Giants 4-0 with Claude Passeau outdueling Hal Schumacher. Passeau allows just 2 singles both by Joe Moore.
Aug 13, 1939 - The Giants hit three successive solo HRs in the 4th inning with Alex Kampouris P Bill Lohrman and Joe Moore connecting. It is the 2nd time in two months that Moore has followed back to back HRs with one of his own. Zeke Bonura adds a 4th solo HR to set a ML record since tied for solo shots in an inning. The Giants add 3 more HRs-Demaree (2) Bob Seeds-to beat the Phils 11-2 in the opener of two. It is also the second time this season they have banged 7 homers and rookie pitcher Bill Kersieck gives up all but one. Seeds incidentally is the only major leaguer to own a minor league team; he is owner and president of Amarillo (NM-West Texas League).
Jul 17, 1936 - Carl Hubbell starts his winning streak beating Pittsburgh 6-0. The Giants hit a NL record tying 4 triples in the first inning: Joe Moore Mel Ott and Hank Leiber hit them in succession and Eddie Mayo adds one later in the inning to equal the ML record.
Aug 14, 1935 - The largest midweek crowd in NL history 50868 sees the Giants and Cards split at the Polo Grounds the Giants winning 6-4 then losing 3-0. Carl Hubbell takes the opener spoiling Paul Dean's 22nd birthday as Jack Rothrock Joe Moore Terry Moore Pepper Martin and Gus Mancuso homer. The Giants outhit the Cards ten to five in the nitecap but lose to Bill Hallahan. Castleman loses his first decision after six straight wins.
Jun 7, 1935 - Behind Roy Parmelee's pitching the Giants squeeze by the visiting Braves 3-2 in 10 innings. Mel Ott homers in the 9th to tie and Bill Terry drives in the winning run in the 10th off Ben Cantwell. Giants LF Joe Moore hits in his 11th straight game.
Jul 13, 1934 - With the Cubs losing to the Braves 7-6 the Giants' 7-6 victory over Pittsburgh puts them two games ahead of Chicago in the NL. Joe Moore's two homers single and double pace New York. Fitzsimmons wins his 12th.
Jun 20, 1934 - The first-place Giants score 7 runs in the 3rd to crush the Cubs 12-7. Mel Ott leads the way with two homers -his 16th and 17th-and drives in 6 runs. Joe Moore has 4 hits including a homer and Fred Fitzsimmons who weakened in the 8th is credited with the win. Charlie Root who got none out in the 3rd before retiring is the loser. The Giants now lead the Cards by five games.
Jul 2, 1933 - Carl Hubbell pitches an entire 18-inning shutout for the Giants over the Cardinals to tie Walter Johnson's ML record for the longest 1-0 victory. He strikes out 12 and walks none allowing only 6 hits in a duel with Tex Carleton who goes the first 16 innings. Jess Haines relieves in the 17th and in the 18th gives up a single to Joe Moore a sacrifice bunt to Gus Mancuso and an intentional pass to Travis Jackson. Hubbell then forces at 2nd and a single by Hughey Critz ends it. In game 2 played in semidarkness Roy Parmelee matches Hubbell and wins 1-0 on a Johnny Vergez HR. The notoriously wild Giants' pitcher does not issue a walk and strikes out 13 to beat Dizzy Dean who is pitching on a day's rest. The Cards go a record 27 innings in the two games with no walks. Not until 1950 will the Cards be shut out again in a twin bill and again it'll be NY.
Jul 18, 1932 - The Giants route the Cubs 13-3 the 6th game in a row that Cubs player-manager Hornsby has started at 3B. He makes another 2 errors. The experiment has not worked well and Hornsby benches himself for good. Joe Moore and Vergez each have 4 hits with 2 of the latter's coming in the 8th inning.
