July 20th In Red Sox Vs. Orioles History

We lost our first 6 games against them on July 20th, then won the next 4 before losing the most recent one. 4-7 in 11 games. (Now 5-7 if you include today's win.)

1921: The Red Sox led 7-0 and 9-5 going to the bottom the 8th. The Browns scored 2 in the 8th and 2 in the 9th to tie it, then won it 10-9 with a run in the bottom of the 12th. The game lasted more than 4 hours. Among St. Louis's 22 hits were 8 doubles and a triple. Billy Gerber knocked in Baby Doll Jacobsen, who slid in under catcher Muddy Ruel, to win the game--Pedroia is not the first Muddy the Sox have had.

1941: In game one, Ted Williams hit a pinch-hit 3-run dong in the 9th, but the Sox lost 6-3. In game two, Bob Muncrief whitewashed Boston 10-0. George McQuinn hit 3 homers on the day at Sportsman's Park.

1946: Jeff Heath's 2-run single in the 7th gave the Browns a 5-4 win at Fenway.

1947: Browns sweep Sox in St. Louis. 4-3 in game one, and then Boston blows a 4-0 lead in game two, losing 7-6. The Browns' manager? Muddy Ruel. One article noted that Ted Williams had gone from "Tam Ted" to "Terrible Ted." Another one I saw yesterday called him "Landy Red." Anybody know what that means? I don't.

1948: The Red Sox win for the 555th time against the Orioles franchise, beating the Browns 8-3 at Fenway. Jack Kramer, who won game one of the 1947 doubleheader for St. Louis, wins this one, now in a Boston uniform.

1969: The Sox use 6 pitchers and withstand a 3-run, 9th-inning Orioles rally to win 6-5 on Sunday afternoon at Fenway. Syd O'Brien singled, tripled, and homered in the victory. Then everyone went home and watched the first man walk on the moon.

1996: Kevin Mitchell homers and Tim Wakefield gets the W in a 2-0 Red Sox win at Fenway.

2000: Day-night doubleheader at Camden. Sox rack up 17 hits in game one and win 11-7. In game 2, current movie star Scott Hatteberg donged, but the O's won 9-4. Boston would never get closer than the 1 game out of first they were at the end of that day.
