On September 17, 1921 — Spitballer Allen Sothoron runs his record to 12 – 4 as Cleveland beats Washington, 8 – 4. Sothoron, with his third American League team this year, pitches 178 innings allowing no homers, the only post-dead ball era pitcher to accomplish that. The Reds’ Eppa Rixey almost matches him, allowing one homer in 301 innings.
