Christy Mathewson leaves after five innings of shutout ball, and Mal Eason tosses the last four innings. Dan McGann paces the offense with a triple and homer, while Moonlight Graham, in his only game in the majors, takes over in right field as a late inning replacement. Graham will have no at-bats but will be made famous in W.P. Kinsella's Field of Dreams. |
