FROM THE BASEBALL CHRONOLOGY
»August 3, 1911: Against the Cubs, visiting Brooklyn gets three homers in the 5th inning as Eddie Zimmerman, Tex Erwin, and Zack Wheat connect, not consecutively, in the 53 win. Zim's and Erwin's come against Lurid Lew Richie, while Fred Toney serves up Wheat. The trio will total six homers on the year.
»August 13, 1911: The Pirates' Elmer Steele throws just 72 pitches in subduing the Superbas, 90. Steele gives up no walks and has no strikeouts, and allows just one hita one-out 9th inning single to light-hitting Tex Erwin. Brooklyn so admires the feat they obtain him on September 16th, but he never wins another game in the ML.
