On July 5, 1904 At Philadelphia’s Huntington Park, the John McGraw lead New York Giants’ 18-game winning streak ends when the Philadelphia Phillies prevail, 6 – 5 in 10 innings. Rookie Bob Hall’s bloop single off reliever Dummy Taylor scores Red Dooin. The Giants’ record is now 53-18, effectively ending the National League race. By September 1, they will lead the Cubs by 15 games.
