Ralph Works from the Chronology
Sep 26, 1912 -
Trailing 9-0 going into the 9th inning at Chicago the Reds stage a terrific comeback against Jimmy Lavender. Lavender gives up 5 runs and is lifted with the bases loaded. Reliever Fred Toney then walks three straight before Larry Chaney is brought in. The Reds then take an unlikely 10-9 lead as Chaney walks 2 straight. Reds pitcher Ralph Works catches the fever walking one Cub and hitting another. Reliever Rube Benton quickly relieves and follows suit walking 3 batters in a row to give the Cubs the 11-10 decision. The 10 runs in the 9th when trailing won't be matched until the 1962 White Sox do it against Cleveland on August 11.
