On July 25, 1938 — Cleveland’s Johnny Allen has his 12-game win streak snapped by the Red Sox. In a makeup game from May 10.

Bobby Doerr drives in a run and another score when Ken Keltner makes a throwing error and Jimmie Foxx hit his 27th home run of the season in the seventh-inning would give the Red Sox 4-0 lead to cap the games scoring over the second-place Cleveland Indians in the first game of a doubleheader.

Boston pitcher Emerson Dickman would go the distance for the three-hit shutout and striking out three while only walking one batter to improve his seasonal record to 5-2.

Cleveland pitcher Johnny Allen would take only his second loss of the season as he entered the game with a 12-1 record and 27-2 going back to last year (15-1), unfortunately, Allen would have a rough go at it in August going 0-6 with a 8.12 ERA, he would finish the season with a 14-8 record.
