On August 23, 1909 — In the first game of a doubleheader, Brooklyn swipes six bases in a 7 – 0 win over the Cards, who steal two bases. With lefthander Jim Pastorius pitching in the second game, Brooklyn C Bill Bergen (photo) then throws out six (erroneously listed as 7) of eight base-stealing Cardinals in a 9 – 1 St. Louis victory. Bergen’s mark is a 20th century high, twice tied in 1915.
