FROM THE BASEBALL CHRONOLOGY
»August 5, 1902: Cleveland rookie Otto Hess, who made his debut two days ago, wobbles to a 7-6 ten-inning win over the Washington Nationals. The Nats test the rookie by laying down 14 bunts, three of which are misplayed by Hess, four are hits, and seven go for sacrifices. Cleveland SS Johnny Gochnauer breaks his finger in the 3rd inning when he tries to flag down a line drive hit by Ed Delahanty. Gochnauer stays in the game and doubles in the tying runs in the 8th inning and doubles home the winner off Casey Patten in the 10th.
