TOM SHEEHAN

BACK-TO-BACK WORLD SERIES CHAMPS
A wild pitch gives the Red Sox a win

June 23, 1916 ... A's pitcher Tom Sheehan won it for the Red Sox.  His wild pitch gave the Red Sox to an undeserved victory.  The score was 1 to 0 and the solitary Sox run was given to them in the seventh inning when Sheehan, who only allowed two hits, uncorked a run scoring bad pitch.  The Sox hits were made in the first and eight innings and did not even figure in the run.  The Athletics nicked Ernie Shore for six hits and two passes, but a smart defense provided the solution and none was turned into a run. The Red Sox run came when Sheehan walked Dick Hoblitzell.  Tilly Walker sacrificed him to second, and Larry Gardner moved him to third on his ground out to Nap Lajoie, setting up the game-winning wild pitch.  Red Sox pitchers have now pitched three consecutive shutouts and have allowed just two runs in the last six games.
