Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 6-26-2017

Since we missed it over the weekend…

New York Sun, June 24, 1917:

A no hit, no run, no man reached first base pitching performance by Ernest Shore, Boston twirler [and] an assault upon Umpire Owens by Babe Ruth…were incidents of the world champions’ double victory over Washington to-day. The scores were 4 to 0 and 5 to 0.

Shore’s entry into the select list of pitchers who have shown perfect performances was made possibly by Ruth’s banishment from the first game. Ruth had pitched only to Ray Morgan and Umpire Owens had given the latter his base on balls. Ruth argued the decision. The umpire ordered him off the field and Ruth then struck at Owens.

Shore came in, Morgan was caught stealing second, and then Shore retired 26 batters in a row for one of the most memorable pitching performances in history.
