»June 2, 1901: Milwaukee P Bill Reidy surrenders 10 consecutive hits to the Boston Somersets with two outs in the 9th inning to set a ML record. Nine runs score, a ML-record-tying number set a week ago, as Milwaukee loses 13-2. Boston pitcher Ben Beville, who took over at 1B in the 5th after Jimmy Collins and Buck Freeman had been tossed by umpire Haskell for arguing and kicking dirt, contributes two doubles-the only hits of his career-in the big inning.
