FROM THE BASEBALL CHRONOLOGY
»May 9, 1916: Thirty walks are allowed at Philadelphia as Detroit overwhelms the A's 16–2. Tiger rookie George Cunningham is lifted with one out in the 3rd inning after walking six batters. He is given the win, but leaves with a no hitter and leading 9–0. Eighteen of the walks are issued by the A's — 12 by reliever Carl Ray — on their way to a season total of 715. Not until 1938 will a team (the St. Louis Browns with 737) top that. Detroit will add another 11 walks against the A's tomorrow for a 2-game major-league record of 29.
