On April 11, 1912 — at Washington Park III, Rube Marquard of the New York Giants begins a nineteen-game consecutive winning streak by beating the Brooklyn Dodgers, 18-3, in a game which features 13 ground rule doubles hit by the visitors because of the overflow crowd being placed in the outfield and along the foul lines.

Marquard helped his own cause going 3-4 with 3 RBI’s. The future Hall of Fame southpaw’s streak will end in July when the Giants lose to Chicago at the West Side Grounds, 7-2.
