On August 5, 1922 — Rogers Hornsby sets a new National League single-season home run record with his 28th, eclipsing a 38-year-old mark set by Ed Williamson of the Chicago White Stockings in 1884. Hornsby’s 6th-inning solo shot off Jimmy Ring provides St. Louis’s sole means of support in this 9 – 1 Philly rout.
