»September 10, 1912: Boston's Smoky Joe Wood wins his 15th straight, with 9th inning relief help from Sea Lion Hall, beating the White Sox, 5–4. He scatters 12 hits and strikes out 5. There is some question about which pitcher should receive credit for the win, but American League president Ban Johnson will rule in favor of Wood.
»October 9, 1912: Three errors by Giants SS Art Fletcher help put Christy Mathewson behind 4–2 until the team rallies for three in the 8th when Duffy Lewis muffs a fly ball by Fred Snodgrass. Boston ties it in the last of the 8th. The Giants push across a run in the 10th off reliever "Sea Lion" Hall, but Tris Speaker blasts a triple to deep center. Apparently out at home trying to stretch it into a home run, he is safe when C Art Wilson, who has just entered the game, drops the throw for New York's 5th error. Darkness ends the game at 6–6 after 11 innings.
