On September 21, 1925 — 1925 – Pittsburgh OF Kiki Cuyler ties the National League record by getting his 10th consecutive hit, singling in his first two at bats, off Art Decatur and Dutch Ulrich, before he fouls out in his 3rd at bat, against the Phils’ Decatur. The Pirates win the opener, 9 – 7. In the nitecap, a 14 – 4 Pirates win, Cuyler has his 3rd 4-for-4 game in his last four outings. He clouts two homers to back Ray Kremer’s pitching. Phils utility player Bernie Friberg catches the 8th inning in the game, thus playing every position during the year; he will be featured in a Ripley’s Believe it or Not cartoon.
