Cy Young vs Brickyard Kennedy

Young Struggles But Americans Stay Alive

Cy Young was a 5x 30 game winner

In a pitching matchup between a future Hall of Famer and a guy with a really cool nickname, the Hall of Famer won out, but just barely.

The Americans jumped on Brickyard Kennedy for 2 runs in the 1st, on a Jimmy Collins single, a Chick Stahl triple, and a Buck Freeman single, just his second hit in the series.

Cy Young allowed 2 hits in the bottom of the 1st, but Fred Clarke was thrown out at home on a fine throw from RFer Patsy Dougherty to end the inning. The Pirates took the lead after scoring 2 runs in the 3rd on 2 out singles from Honus Wagner and Kitty Bransfield. And in the 4th inning Young served up a meatball to Brickyard Kennedy, who promptly sauced it for a 2 out triple. Young, obviously pissed, threw a wild pitch allowing Kennedy to score the go ahead run.

Buck Freeman came through again in the 5th for the Americans, lacing a 2 out rbi single to tie the score at 3.

In the top of the 8th Lou Criger smacked his 3rd triple of the series to drive in 2, to give the Americans a 5-3 lead.

Young once again dug himself a hole, loading the bases by giving up 3 straight singles to start the 8th inning. Luckily Ed Phelps banged in to a 6-4-3 double play, driving in a run, but killing the rally.

A 1-2-3 inning for Young in the 9th sealed the Americans 2nd straight 1 run victory.

  1. Brickyard Kennedy. Man, they don’t make nicknames like that anymore.
