FROM THE BASEBALL CHRONOLOGY
»September 3, 1917:
At Shibe Park, the A's host their biggest crowd in three years and celebrate by sweeping a pair from the Senators, 7–4 and 9–2. Joe Bush, reinstated today by Connie Mack after being suspended for two weeks, starts for the A's but is lifted after three because of wildness. Roy Grover and Amos Strunk have three hits apiece in the opener. In the 2nd game, the Mackmen jump on Walter Johnson, knocking him off the rubber in the 3rd inning, and Jing Johnson coasts to the win.
