On July 19, 1916 — 1916 – At Chicago, the Giants edge the Cubs, 8 – 6, as New York CF Benny Kauff tags out two runners at second base for a double play. With one out the Cubs load the bases. Giant catcher Bill Rariden throws to second and catches the runner, Les Mann, off. In the rundown, the runner on third breaks for home and scores when the Giants fumble. But the ball is recovered and the throw to Kauff covering second gets the runner sliding back. Kauff then looks up and tags the runner trying to advance from first base to end the inning.
