20 Red Sox players can't beat the A's
June 26, 1916 ...
The Athletics came back with their first win at Fenway Park of the year by a score of 8 to 5. Manager Bill Carrigan used 20 of his players to try and keep the winning streak intact, but the A's were on their toes, banging out 14 hits
against Red Sox pitchers. Rube Foster, coming off his no-hitter, was on the mound but got blasted for four hits and two runs in the first inning, and got three runs on four more hits off Rube in the fourth inning. Meanwhile the Sox had negotiated only two runs off Philly
starter Weldon Wyckoff on four passes and a wild pitch in the fourth inning. The Red Sox threatened to get back into the game on numerous occasions but fell short when men were on base.
