Against the Philadelphia Athletics and their untested rookie pitcher Pete Loos, the visiting Boston Somersets score a pair in the first inning, explode for nine runs in the 2nd inning, then do better in the 3rd by scoring ten runs, a major-league record scoring spree of 19 runs for consecutive innings. The aptly named Loos walks the first four hitters in the 2nd, then exits after going 2-0 on the 5th batter. Vet Bill Bernhard relieves with little effect. The final score is 23-12, with a record nine players scoring two or more runs. The A's have four players scoring twice for 2-team ML-record 13, a mark not tied until the same two teams match it in 1950. For Pete Loos, it is his only major-league appearance. Parson Lewis is the winner.
