You can't blame it on the wind as one of the most poorly pitched ML games ever played takes place in Chicago. The Cubs edge the Phils 26-23 in a game that features 51 hits 23 walks and 10 errors. The Phils have the bases loaded in the 9th when the game ends making a total of 16 left on base; the Cubs leave 9. When the Cubs score 14 runs in the 4th to take a 25-6 lead OF Marty Callaghan bats 3 times (a since tied record) getting 2 hits and striking out. Modern ML records are set or tied for total runs (49 by two teams) and hits most players scoring runs (Phils 13) and most players scoring 2+ runs (Cubs 9) most plate appearances (66 by the Phils). The 14-run inning ties the Yankees' mark of July 6 1920; The Phils add a run in the 4th to make the two-team total of 15 a record for the inning as is the 2nd inning total of 13-ten from the Cubs side and 3 from the Phils. Cliff Heathcote of the Cubs sets a modern NL record by reaching base 7 times in the 9-inning game. Hack Miller helps run up the Chicago total with 3-run homers in the 2nd and 4th innings. His first blast is just the 2nd homer to reach the centerfield scoreboard located at ground level in Cubs Park: Hornsby hit the first last year. A team-record 13 players score runs for the Phils. Tony Kaufmann is the winner over Jimmy Ring in the game that lasts a surprisingly short 3:01.
