Mack Wheat from the Chronology
Aug 14, 1918 - Sailor Burleigh Grimes pitches Brooklyn to a 4-2 win over the Phils. The Phils take the lead but veteran Jimmy Archer relieves young Mack Wheat behind the plate in the 5th and Grimes' spitball works to perfection after that.
Aug 7, 1918 - Brooklyn slows the Cubs' victory drive by beating Chicago 3-2 behind Burleigh Grimes. All the Robins scoring comes on a 3-run homer by Mack Wheat-his first in the majors while his brother Zack has a single to stretch his hitting streak to 26 games. Phil Douglas takes the loss for the Cubs.
