Mike Kreevich from the Chronology
Apr 21, 1944 - Mike Kreevich hits a pair of HRs as the Browns beat the White Sox 5-3. In the preceding 3 years a period involving 297 games Kreevich tallied just one homer. The Browns off to a fast start will win their first six games April 23rd.
Sep 2, 1937 - For the second time this season the first 2 batters in a game-the White Sox Boze Berger and Mike Kreevich-hit HRs victimizing Boston's Johnny Marcum at Fenway. This is the 1st time 2 AL batters have opened with HRs. Chicago takes a pair from Boston winning 4-2 and 10-8.
Sep 11, 1936 - Hod Lisenbee of the Philadelphia A's ties a ML record for hits allowed giving up 26 in a 17-2 rout by Chicago. The 37-year-old goes all 8 innings at Comiskey as Monte Stratton coasts to the win. Chicago is paced by the trio of Mike Kreevich Zeke Bonura and Luke Appling with five hits apiece tying the AL record and the Pale Hose tie another AL record with 4 players notching 4+ hits. The 4-with-4 record was set on September 29 1928 by Detroit. Rip Radcliff has 4 hits and 4 runs and Jackie Hayes collects 3 hits. Les "Plymouth" Rock takes over for Bonura at 1B and grounds into a DP in his only ML plate appearance. He does drive in a run however: the RBI credit will be changed in 1939 so that a double play is excluded.
Aug 31, 1936 - Yankees manager Joe McCarthy consents to Dixie Walker as a temporary substitute while the White Sox patch up Mike Kreevich who is spiked on a play. Walker runs for Kreevich but does not replace him in the outfield. Recently acquired Bob Seeds poles 2 homers and DiMaggio adds another as the Yanks win 5-1. Johnny Broaca wins his 11th scattering 4 hits.
