The pennant race heats up!
At Louisville's Eclipse Park
The Brewers gift-wrap this one, committing six errors. Gene Packard allows only four hits as his Colonels make the most of their five hits. Stoney McGlynn is pulled after two innings as Milwaukee's lead over Louisville slips a game.
At Washington Park, Indianapolis
The Indians turn the tables on the Millers, defeating them by the same score as the previous day's. Tribe's manager/first-baseman Charlie Carr hits a home run.
At Swayne Field, Toledo
Toledo Mud Hens.....2
Kansas City Blues.....1
Again the Hens win, 2-1, this time in dramatic style by tallying with two outs in the ninth. With Frank Owen on the hill for the Hens, the Blues muster only four hits, one a seventh-inning home run by second baseman Jack Love. By taking four-straight from KC they climb above Columbus in the standings and now occupy sixth place.
At Neil Park, Columbus
St. Paul Saints.....9
With a decisive seven-hit shutout authored by Louis Leroy, the Native American pitcher for St. Paul, the Saints cap their trip to Columbus before heading for Toledo. St. Paul shortstop Al Boucher has two triples in the affair. Leroy is in peak form, never allowing more than one hit in any inning.
And that's your American Association scoreboard for Thursday, Sept. 16, 1909, one hundred years ago today!
