On August 25, 1922 — In the first of a doubleheader before a sold-out Polo Grounds, the Browns beat the Yankees, 3 – 1, behind Urban Shocker. Waite Hoyt is the loser, but stops Ken Williams’ hitting streak at 28 games. George Sisler hits in his 24th straight game. In game two, the Yankees jump to a 2 – 0 lead on Babe Ruth’s 2-run triple, then extend it to 6 – 1 behind Joe Bush. The Browns close to 6 – 5, but that is it.
