FROM THE BASEBALL CHRONOLOGY
»May 25, 1906: Jesse Tannehill snaps the Boston Pilgrims' 20-game losing streak-19 at home-with a 3-0 win over the White Sox. Jesse's batterymate Bob Peterson drives in all the runs in a game that takes one hour and 15 minutes. Both of these loss streaks by Boston are AL records. Both Boston teams will finish last, while both Chicago teams finish first. It's the first time two cities have had two winners and two cellar-dwellers, and it won't happen again until 1921, when New York has the winners, and Philadelphia the last-placers.
