Chief Bender vs King Cole

The Chief Beats The King As A’s Take Game 4””

Leonard Leslie “King” Cole pitched the 1st no-hitter in Cubs history. He also gave up the 1st major league hit to a guy named Ruth.

Chief Bender struggled early, allowing 12 hits and 5 runs through 6 innings, finding himself on the short end of a 5-2 game. He settled down however, pitching a perfect last 3 innings. His A’s teammates finally got to King Cole in the 7th. With the bases loaded and 1 out, thanks to a single, a walk and a throwing error by catcher Jimmy Archer, Eddie Collins bombed one over the head of centerfielder Solly Hofman for a bases clearing triple. After a Danny Murphy single and an error by Joe Tinker at short, Jack Barry scorched an Orval Overall fastball down the 1st base line for a 2 run triple, and an 8-5 A’s lead, a lead they would never relinquish.
