Progressive Era Intrasquad Game Results

Friday, January 5, 2018

The 19th C intrasquad game was here.

Progressive Era Starters 8
Progressive Era Reserves 8

Game called on account of darkness after 9 innings.

The Reserves had an 8-2 lead headed to the 9th, Nap Lajoie and Eddie Collins played for both teams and they paced the Reserve squad. Lajoie hit a grand slam off of Pete Alexander and added a run scoring double;  Collins was 3-3 and scored twice. Jimmy Collins and Roger Bresnahan each had a couple of hits.  Christy Mathewson went 5 2/3, gave up 2 runs and seemed headed for the win...


Dan Brouthers was most of the offense for the Starters through 8 innings, he homered and doubled twice off Mathewson.  Home Run Baker and the previously mentioned Eddie Collins each tripled.  But going to the 9th the Starters trailed 8-2, Joe McGinnity had only given up a hit in 2 1/3, but the Starters opened up the inning with a Wally Schang walk and a Ty Cobb single.  Doc Crandall, the Progressive Era closer, came on and gave up a base hit to Eddie Collins (his 3rd hit for the Starters to match his 3 for the Reserves) Honus Wagner singled, Brouthers and Harry Heilmann worked back to back walks. Lajoie hit a run scoring groundout, Fred Clarke a run scoring sac fly, and with 2 out Baker singled home the tying run, his 3rd hit of the game. 

When the Reserves went down in their half the intrasquad game was called. 

So - this works for me; it's a lot of hits, a lot of runs, but it's still a baseball game.  I don't want them all to be 8-8 going to extra innings, but it's a baseball game.  Lot of bats on this team, let me tell you.
