» September 24, 1904:
For the 2nd time this season, Chicago's Patsy Dougherty spoils a no-hit bid with a safety. This time it is off New York's Joe Lake. Patsy did it earlier in the year while with Boston.
» April 24, 1909: Sidelined much of April with the flu, Walter Johnson makes his 1st appearance of the year. He should've stayed in bed as the Highlanders rough him up for six runs before he's lifted in the 3rd. Behind Joe Lake, New York rolls to a 17-0 win over Washington.
» May 4, 1910: President Taft takes in two games starting with the Reds and the Cardinals at Robison Field in St. Louis. The Cards score five in the 1st as Reds pitchers Fred Beebe, Walt Slagle (in his only ML appearance) and Harry Coveleski will eventually walk a record 16 in the 12–3 loss. The Cards walk seven to total a record 23. Taft doesn't stick around. He leaves for Sportsman's Park in hopes of seeing some good baseball and is rewarded by a 3–3, 14-inning battle between the Browns' Joe Lake and the Naps' Cy Young that ends in darkness. There will be a record 19 ties in the AL this year.
» September 20, 1912: Joe Wood's bid for a 17th straight victory falls short as Detroit beats Boston 6–4 on two unearned runs. Wood gives up seven hits and, in the 3rd, walks four in a row. Detroit starter Bill Covington is thrown out of the game in the 5th inning with the Tigers ahead 3–1, receives credit for the victory. Joe Lake mops up the last five innings for Detroit.
