Chicago Launches Into Second Half With Sweep Over Groggy Baltimore

lemonJuly 8: Chicago 8, Baltimore 0

The Orioles seemed to still be on the All-Star Break as they weakly offered at the bedeviling pitches of Eddie Cicotte, who picked up his second shutout of the season. A Baltimore batter only made it to second base once in the game. Meanwhile, the Chicagoans swatted 17 knocks all over the field, including a double and a homer each by Chet Lemon and Harold Baines. Lemon added two singles for a four-hit day.

July 9: Chicago 4, Baltimore 3 (10 innings)

The Orioles showed a little more life the next day against Ed Walsh. They pushed just one run across in the first five frames, but after the first three hitters of Baltimore’s sixth got hits and scored one, Walsh got the quick hook in exchange for Terry Forster. Forster retired all three he faced, but a third run was charged to Walsh on a sac fly to give Baltimore a 3-1 lead.

The White Sox showed their mettle and battled back against Harry Howell and Darren O’Day in the top of the eighth to tie it up, and then Eddie Collins led off the top of the 10th with a triple and came home to score the winning run on a Frank Thomas sac fly.

The White Sox put the finishing touches on an impressive sweep on the strength of Thornton Lee’s hurling and a balanced offensive attack. The Orioles got the winning run to the plate in the bottom of the ninth with just one out, but Keith Foulke got George Sisler to roll into a double play.
