The 1909 Pennant Race: Games of Monday, Sept. 20

At Louisville's Eclipse Park:
Louisville Colonels.....5
Minneapolis Millers.....3
The Colonels outhit the Millers 14-7 as Frank Decanniere defeats spitball artist Roy Patterson in the final game of the series. Despite the advantage in the hits column, it was a close game throughout. Louisville played errorless ball, and catcher Johnny "Runt" Hughes went four-of-four with a home run for the hosts.

At Indianapolis' Washington Park:
Milwaukee Brewers.....1
Indianapolis Indians.....0
Stoney McGlynn tosses another shutout on his way to another of his league record 14 blankings, stopping the Indians on two hits. McGlynn had a double against the Tribe, showing he could still wield the willow well for an old-timer! Indianapolis threatened in the ninth by putting two runners on base with one out, but the magician of the mound for Milwaukee put out the fire to enable the Brewers to keep pace with the Colonels who defeated Minneapolis.

And that's your update for the 1909 pennant race, 100 years ago today in the American Association!
