On August 19, 1922 — 1922 – In Philadelphia, the Browns and A’s split a pair, with St. Louis taking the opener, 9 – 5. Urban Shocker is backed by Ken Williams’ 31st home run. He hits his 32nd in the nitecap, but the A’s win, 6 – 5, when Bing Miller bangs a 2-run homer in the eighth off Rasty Wright. The split allows the Yankees, winner over Chicago, to move back into first place.
