With the bases loaded in the 3rd against the Indians‚ Boston pitcher Earl Wilson is about throw when Tito Francona‚ the runner on first base‚ yells‚ “hold it‚ Earl.” Wilson holds the ball‚ then stumbles off the mound‚ balking home the game’s first run. The Indians plate 9 more in the game to win‚ 10 – 0‚ behind Jim Perry. Willie Kirkland drives in 5 runs with a homer and double.
