John Quinn from the Chronology
Aug 14, 1932 - At the Polo Grounds John Quinn at 49 becomes the oldest P to win a ML game. He relieves Van Mungo in the 9th after Johnny Frederick hits a pinch-hit HR off Carl Hubbell in the 9th to tie at 1-1. The Dodgers win in the 10th when Tony Cuccinello drives home Hack Wilson for Brooklyn's 4th straight win over the Giants. The pinch homer is Frederick's 4th pinch-hit HR of the year for a new ML record. He will have 6 by the season's end. The Giants win the nitecap 8-4 as Bill Terry and Mel Ott belt homers.
Oct 12, 1929 - At 45 John Quinn (11-9) gets a start against Root. After giving up a HR to Charlie Grimm with a man on in the 3rd Quinn serves up 4 straight singles to open the 6th and in comes Rube Walberg (18-11). The inning ends with the score 7-0. Trailing 8-0 in the 7th the Athletics in the greatest rally in World Series history shake Chicago by scoring 10 runs for a 10-8 victory. The most damaging play is Hack Wilson's misjudgment of a ?y from Mule Haas's bat which goes for a 3-run inside-the-park HR.
