FROM THE BASEBALL CHRONOLOGY
»September 15, 1901:
It could've been worse. The Detroit Tigers rolls over Cleveland behind Ed Siever with the most lopsided score in AL history: 21-0 (equaled on August 13, 1939). Cleveland pounds out 24 hits off rookie Jack Bracken as Pop Dillon leads the way with four hits. The game is mercifully called after seven 1/2 innings to allow Cleveland to catch a train. Bracken's ERA is not helped by this outing and he will end this season, his only one in the majors, with a 6.21 mark, the highest in the deadball era.
