Carl Mays' two walks and a hit
beat the Red Sox
August 14, 1916 ...
Red Sox failed to show their winning form and were defeated by Washington 2 to 1. Carl Mays started for the Sox a pitched a fine game until two men were out in the seventh inning, when he walked George McBride and then Danny Moeller, bringing
hot-hitting Ray Morgan to the plate. Morgan drove a double to the banking in left field scoring the two winning Nats' runs.
The Red Sox scored their only run in the third inning of Washington starter Bert Gallia, when Everet Scott singled,. Pinch Thomas drew a pass and Harry Hooper singled. The Sox were thwarted in the sixth when Clyde Milan made a sensational catch off Duffy
Lewis, and again in the seventh when, with the bases loaded, Gainor struck out and Janvrin grounded out.
