On August 29, 1931 — Lefty Grove fans the side in the 1st inning, hands out a walk to Lou Gehrig to start the 2nd, and records three more K’s. Lefty has two K’s in the 3rd but develops a blister from gripping the ball. Gehrig knocks Grove out of the box with a 6th-inning grand slam, but the A’s lefty still wins, 7 – 4. Lou now has 142 RBIs. Jimmie Foxx knocks in five runs for the A’s.
