Stan Baumgartner from the Chronology
Oct 2, 1925 - The A's roll over the 7th-place Yankees 10-0 in Philadelphia behind Stan Baumgartner. Rookie Leo Durocher makes his debut as a pinch hitter in the 8th against Baumgartner. The Lip flies out. For the veteran Baumgartner it is his last ML appearance. Jimmy Dykes is 5-for-5 for the A's with a triple and homer hitting the first pitch each time. Four of his hits are off Garland Braxton.
Jun 15, 1925 - In Shibe Park with the Indians leading the first-place A's 15-3 after 7 innings many fans (and starting pitcher Stan Baumgartner) leave and miss the greatest rally of the century. The A's score a run in the 7th and then plate a club-record 13 in the 8th for a 17-15 win and making up a 12-run deficit tying a record set in 1911. Led by Al Simmons with a single and 3-run homer the A's collect 9 hits and 4 walks in the rampage. The outburst gives Tom Glass the 5th pitcher for the A's his lone ML victory (and the last game he ever pitches) as he allows a run and 7 hits in 3 innings. Glass makes the first out in the 8th and is lifted for Sammy Hale when his turn comes up again. Rube Walberg closes out the Indians in the 9th. George Uhle one of four Tribe pitchers in the 8th takes the loss. The Indians tally 24 hits 5 by Charley Jamieson and 4 each by R.H. Knode and Joe Sewell. Bill Lamar in the middle of a 16-game hit streak leads the A's with 4 hits and an intentional walk. The latter loads the bases in the 8th for Al Simmons who park one on the roof of the upper deck in left.
