THE SOX HAVE TWO
20 GAME WINNERS ...
Wes Ferrell wins the game with
his arm and his bat
July 10, 1935 ... Wes
Ferrell turned in his 13th victory when the Red Sox beat the Chicago
White Sox 7-0 at Fenway Park. Ferrell and Hal Schumacher of the New
York Giants are the first two hurlers to record 13 wins this season.
Ferrell pitched a whale
of a game, allowing only two hits, one of which was a slow roller to
Billy Werber at third who couldn't throw the runner out in time. The
other was a clean single to center, both by Tony Piet. Only
one of the visitors was able to make it as far as third base and was
also the only one to get as far as second.
In addition to his fine work on the mound, Wes started a rally in the
sixth inning with a homer over the wall in left center. Then in the
next inning Ferrell drove in another runner with a single to center.
Although Ferrell was pretty much the whole show, Bing Miller was
perfect on the day with three singles and a double in four times up.
Werber also took one over the wall in the fourth inning.
