Cleveland SS Neal Ball executes the 20th century's first unassisted triple play in the top of the 2nd against the Red Sox. With Heinie Wagner on 2B and Jake Stahl on 1B‚ Amby McConnell hits a line drive to Ball‚ who steps on 2B and tags Stahl coming down from 1B. In the last of the 2nd‚ Ball hits his first AL homer‚ an inside-the-park shot‚ and adds a double. Cleveland wins 6-1 behind Cy Young‚ but Boston wins the nitecap‚ 3-2.
