Luke Hamlin from the Chronology
Sep 4, 1944 - The Yankees move past St. Louis and Detroit by bombing the A's 10-0 and 14-0. Two rookies are winners Monk Dubiel in the opener and Mel Queen in the nitecap. Queen had a double and 2 singles in the opener and George Stirnweiss has a steal in each game to run his total to 49. Bobo Newsom takes the loss in the opener while Luke Hamlin gives up 19 hits in a complete game loss in game 2. It's the first time since May 31st that the Yanks have been in 1st. The Red Sox are in 4th place 3 games behind.
Sep 21, 1941 - 35909 fans are on hand at Shibe Park many traveling from Brooklyn to cheer for the Dodgers. Brooklyn wins the opener 8-3 behind Johnny Allen and the Phils win the nitecap 6-3. Phils outfielder Danny Litwhiler hits a 1st inning grand slam off Luke Hamlin to start the scoring. The Dodgers now lead by a game.
Jul 4, 1938 - In the second of a pair Dodger Luke Hamlin has the dubious distinction of serving up two grand slams to the Giants. Dick Bartell and Gus Mancuso do the honors the second time in two months that teammates have slammed in a game. New York rolls 16-1 after winning the opener 3-0 behind Hal Schumacher.
Apr 19, 1938 - At Opening Day at Baker Bowl 2 rookies smash home runs in their first at bats. With 2 outs in the 1st inning newly acquired Ernie Koy smashes a HR off Phils P Wayne LeMaster. Phils lead off hitter Emmett Mueller then hammers a Van Lingle Mungo offering for a HR to tie the game. Mueller is 2-for-3 while Koy looking like a Hall of Famer goes 3-for-5 in the Dodgers 12-5 win. Luke Hamlin is the victor over Wayne LeMaster.
