April 22, 1908 Boston (AL) at Washington

Here's another game from the 1908 Co-op season.

April 22nd, 1908

WASHINGTON – Nationals pitcher Charlie Smith made short work of the visiting Red Sox, striking out five en route to a 4-0 victory.

Boston scarcely put up a fight, collecting a mere five hits in the contest. Washington, on the other hand, won the game on eight hits total, including three from right fielder Otis Clymer. In the process, Clymer drove in one run on an eight inning double which put the game away for sure.

Boston starter George Winter couldn’t get the drop ball to drop correctly, and was yanked after six innings.

After the shutout, Smith’s ERA stands at 1.06.
