Tom O’Brien of the New York Giants receives perhaps the first intentional walk in major league history. In the 8th inning, with runners on second and third bases with one out, Ed Delahanty of the Philadelphia Phillies tells teammate pitcher Jack Fifield to walk O’Brien, who has hit well all day. Then next batter, Fred Hartman, hits into a double play.
The Philadelphia Phillies defeat the visiting New York Giants for the third time in a row, a come-from-behind 3 – 2 victory. The Phillies tie the score at two apiece when Gavvy Cravath hits a two-run pinch-homer in the 8th inning off Christy Mathewson. After the first two batters are retired in the 9th, Philadelphia pushes across a run to win.
