On June 26, 1948 — Lou Boudreau, the Tribe’s player-manager, who will finish the season with 199 hits, has a two-run single taken away when his pitcher Bob Muncrief misses third base in the Indians’ 5-0 victory over Washington. The right-hander makes up for his base running gaffe by hurling a three-hit shutout in the Cleveland Stadium contest.
