When Jones is lifted, so is Gainer, who closes out his career with the home run. The Cards also take the opener, 9–8.
» November 7, 1928: The Cubs get Rogers Hornsby from the financially strapped Braves in exchange for $200,000, IF Fred Maguire, P Percy Jones, C Lou Legett, former A's P Harry Seibold, and P Bruce Cunningham. Braves owner-president Emil Fuchs also decides to be his own manager. He'll be the last manager with no pro playing experience until Ted Turner's one game, in the 1970s. Under Fuchs, the Barves will finish 56-98, good for last place.
