CHARLIE BERRY

The Red Sox score four runs in the ninth
for a come-from-behind walk-off win

June 9, 1929 ... The battle between the Red Sox and the Tigers at Braves Field was a beauty. It was Ed Morris against George Uhle and Big Ed more than held his own for five innings, driving in the only run at the time himself.

In the sixth, Uhle countered with a scratch hit, that started a rally and pushed the Tigers ahead, 2-1. They added another run the next inning, but after Uhle passed a couple of batters in the eighth, a stolen base by Jack Rothrock, and finally a timely single by Billy Barrett, the Sox evened up the count at 3-3.

But then the Tigers went roaring ahead by putting over three runs in the ninth inning, aided by some loose play by the Sox fielders. It was a bleak scene when the Sox came up in the bottom of the inning.

But things rapidly changed. Phil Todt led off with a base hit to right and went to third on Bill Regan's single to the same area. Ken Williams laced a double to center, scoring Todt and putting Regan on third. Red Ruffing was sent up to hit and lofted a sac fly to deep center, bringing in Regan. Williams jogged over to third and Charlie Berry came up to pinch hit for Morris. He whipped a single down the third base line, scoring Williams with the tying run. Bobby Reeves was next and bunted to move Berry over. He poked a slow roller down the first base line, and Uhle was not able to get it out of his glove and bobbled it before Reeves reached the bag. With Berry now on second and Reeves on first, Russ Scarritt came to the plate. He took the first pitch to left center and Berry scooted him with the walk-off game winner, 7 to 6.
