Robbins Hit Hi Bell, Cardinals Winning Streak Ends
June 14, 1926 at Ebbets Field
The Brooklyn Robins ended the Cardinals' six game winning streak and hammered Hi Bell in the early innings. By the end of the second inning, the Robins already had scored five runs. The Cardinals crept back into the game but three more runs by the Robins put the game away.
Hi Bell only lasted 1 1/3 innings. He gave up the five runs on seven hits. Rogers Hornsby had two hits and a run as did Tommy Thevenow. The big play of the game was a triple play in the seventh inning. Thevenow and Jake Flowers singled to start the inning, then Ray Blades hit a hard liner to left field. Rabbit Maranville made the shoe string catch, then fired to second base for two outs. Flowers was running on the play and when he slid into second base, Maranville made the tag to complete the triple play.
I have to give the deserved credit with regard to this posting mainly to http://www.appraisemuskoka.com. I actually had the idea for this post as a result of I little piece I read on their site.
