but Mays wins in a Sox split
September 5, 1916 ...
The twin bill with the Athletics ended up a tie. The Red Sox managed to lose the first game 5 to 2 and romped in the afternoon to a 7 to 1 win. In the first game Connie Mack used Jing Johnson from Ursinus College, who New Englanders used to see
pitch in the Twin State League. Sox batters said that Jing had nothing and yet they couldn't hit him effectively. Ernie Shore started the game but labored for four inning until he was replaced by Babe Ruth.
Babe fell victim to a series of bunts in the seventh to load the bases, followed by Wally Schang's base hit to bring in two runners. The Sox hitters had no punch with both Duffy Lewis and Dick Hoblitzell failing to deliver with runners in scoring
It was Carl Mays vs Elmer Myers in the second game and both hurlers went the distance. Myers pitched well until the third inning when he passed Pinch Thomas, Mays, and Hal Janvrin. Duffy Lewis then knocked in two runners with a single and a third
scored when Charlie Pick threw wild trying to get Lewis at second, allowing Janny to score.
