Cleveland sweeps an A.M.-P.M. doubleheader from the Browns‚ 7 – 2 and 6 – 5, to retain first place in the American League by a thin margin (.623) over Chicago (.614) and New York (.611). In the morning’s game‚ slick-fielding SS Harry Lunte‚ Ray Chapman‘s replacement‚ pulls up lame running out a single and is out of action. OF Joe Evans takes over short‚ but manager Tris Speaker will push to buy 21-year-old minor leaguer Joe Sewell. Cleveland wins game 2 by scoring a pair of runs in the 9th inning. RF Elmer Smith helps on defense with an unassisted double play‚ the 2nd of 4 he’ll pull off in his career.
