Pete Suder from the Chronology
Aug 12, 1951 -
The Yankees tied for first place with Cleveland lose a pair to the A's. The A's use 17 hits to win the opener 9-5. then use Pennsylvania's Sunday Blue Law at 6:59 (AL Rule is 7:00 with no inning starting after 6:44) to win the nitecap 7-4. The Yanks start an 8th inning 5-run rally at 6:37 and take a 9-7 lead but the curfew wipes it out before Pete Suder can hit. Beginning next year the AL will adopt the 40-year-old suspended game policy of the NL.
