|» June 17, 1904: In a swap greatly criticized in Boston, the Pilgrims send OF Patsy Dougherty to the Highlanders for weak-hitting rookie Bob Unglaub, who played in just six games before being hospitalized with blood poisoning. Dougherty is not the only Patsy changing uniforms this month; For $750, the White Sox release Patsy Flaherty (1-2) to Pittsburgh where he will win 19 more games. This will be his only winning season, but his feat of winning 20 games while pitching for two teams in a season will be matched only by Joe McGinnity, Hank Borowy and Rick Sutcliffe.
» July 4, 1905: In an a.m.-p.m, doubleheader between Boston and Philadelphia, the A's take the morning game 5-2, using pitchers Eddie Plank, Andy Coakley and Rube Waddell on the mound to beat Jesse Tannehill. The afternoon contest proves a classic as Philadelphia's Rube Waddell bests Cy Young in a 20-inning marathon, when the Athletics prevail, 4-2. Boston outhits the A's, 15 to 13, but the 38-year-old Young loses on an error, hit batsman and two hits. Young walks nobody in the 20 innings, while 1B Bob Unglaub records 31 putouts. Philadelphia C Ossee Schreckengost works 28 innings in one day, a ML record.
