On August 6, 1947 — Can a pinch runner drive in a run? Skeeter Webb of the Tigers takes the paths for Fred Hutchinson against the Indians and scores. Detroit bats around, and Webb lifts a fly ball that scores a run in the nine-run 8th. Stubby Overmire wins, 13 – 6, in the first of two. Detroit sweeps, winning the nitecap, 7 – 5, behind Hutchinson.
