Jumbo Brown from the Chronology
Jun 9, 1933 - In Philadelphia Foxx ties a ML record with another HR his 5th in 3 games and his 12th of the year but the A's bow to the Yankees 7-6. Lou Gehrig hits his 12th of the year and Tony Lazzeri hits a 3-run homer in the 8th to ice it. The sweltering heat in the east (NYC sets a heat record for the date with 97 degrees) causes both starters to end early; Jim Peterson leaves after walking the leadoff batter and after 5 innings Jumbo Brown collapses in the Yankees dugout and has to be carried away.
Jun 3, 1933 - Against the Yankees in New York the A's score 11 runs in the 3rd inning then watch New York score 10 in the 5th. Ben Chapman and Tony Lazzeri hit homers in the inning and Lazzeri Jorgenson and Crosetti all have 2 hits in the frame. Babe Ruth clouts his 10th of the year in the 8th. The A's fail to score after the 3rd as pitcher Jumbo Brown strikes out 12 A's in 6 1/3 innings of relief. The Yanks win 17-11. Not until the Red Sox in 1998 will another opponent tally eleven runs in an inning at Yankee Stadium.
