At Cleveland’s League Park, Marty Kavanagh hits the first-ever pinch-hit grand slam in American League history. The infielder’s historic homer proves to be the difference as the Indians beat the Red Sox, 5 – 3. The ball rolls through a hole in the fence and cannot be retrieved in time for a play at the plate. Kavanagh’s blast comes off Boston’s Dutch Leonard and ends Boston’s 7-game win streak.
