Baltimore 1 Newark 0 11 Innings – Babe Ruth Starting Pitcher – Complete Game Victory – 1 for 4 at bat
After pinch hitting and playing the field in yesterday’s doubleheader, Babe Ruth started both games of a doubleheader against the Newark Indians. In the first game, Babe gave up a run in the first inning. In the third inning, the Orioles came back with 8 runs to take a big lead, however, Ruth gave up two more in the third. The Orioles scored one back in the fourth for a 9-3 lead. Babe was only able to get one man out in the fourth, giving up another run and was pulled from the game. That ended the scoring for the day, with the Orioles winning 9-4. Babe got a single in his only at bat. Since he only pitched 3 1/3 innings, he could not be credited with a victory.
Having only pitched three and one-third innings to start the double header, Dunn started Ruth in the second game, as well. Ruth responded with a 1-0, 11 inning complete game shutout. He gave up 5 hits, striking out one and walking three. He also hit safely once in four at bats. Babe increased his record to 5-3. The two victories gave the Orioles an 18-11 record for the season.
