On August 6, 1929 — In a Ladies Day game at Wrigley Field that draws 29,000 women and 11,000 men, the Cubs have their five-game win streak stopped by Brooklyn, 5 – 4, despite Rogers Hornsby’s 23rd home run of the year. Brooklyn’s Johnny Morrison is the winner over Chicago ace Pat Malone. But Chicago will win its next three.
