After the Babe hits his 26th and 27th home runs off Ray Kolp, relief P Elam Vangilder takes no chances with Ruth and walks him intentionally in the 11th and again in the 13th inning. Ruth bats righty against Vangilder. Bob Meusel’s single wins the game, 9 - 8.
  • 1992 — Oakland A’s outfielder Jose Canseco is walked for the seventh consecutive time in the span of two games to tie a major league record.
