On September 26, 1924 — 1924 – With the Yankees beating the A’s, Boston tightens the race by edging the Senators, 2 – 1. September call-up Wade Lefler drives in Nemo Leibold in the 8th with a pinch double for the Nats’ only run. Washington now leads by a game. For the Senators, the loss stops Walter Johnson’s 13-game win streak and Sam Rice’s 31-game hitting streak.
