In the first game of a doubleheader at the Baker Bowl, the Giants win, 5-2. New York pitcher Jesse Barnes, a lifetime .214 hitter, walks twice in one inning, the only pitcher ever to do so. In the nitecap‚ Pete Alexander downs the Series-bound Giants‚ 8-2, for his 30th win. Alex adds two doubles in winning his last game ever in a Phils uniform. Philadelphia will sell the star to the Cubs in December.
