Cleveland Takes Series From Baltimore, Joss Spins Remarkable Shutout

May 12: Baltimore 9, Cleveland 3

George Sisler went bananas with four hits and a walk in his first five plate appearances. A triple in the first, then a walk, then three straight singles before Bob Feller finally got Sisler to groundout in his final PA. Adam Jones and Brooks Robinson also tripled in the game. Urban Shocker allowed a season-low three runs to lower his ERA to 8.51.

May 14: Cleveland 5, Baltimore 0

Addie Joss has one of the better cards for a starting pitcher, but entered this contest with a 6.75 ERA through eight starts. He wasn’t messing around in this complete game shut-out in which he struck out and walked zero. 30 times an Oriole came to the dish, and 30 times they put the ball in play. Joss’s fielders turned 27 of those balls into outs, while three of them squeezed through for harmless singles. Jim Thome finished off a big series by mashing his eighth tater.
