    Rube Benton pitched a complete-game four-hitter to get the win for the Reds.

    Gavvy Cravath will be the name of the day. Clifford Carlton Cravath was an unusual player for the Deadball Era. He hit home runs on a frequent basis. He lead the NL six times in homes runs. 1913 to 1915 were his best seasons hitting 19,19 and 24 in each of those seasons. He held short lived records in home runs for a season and a career. Cravath played the outfield for the Red Sox,White Sox and Senators before settling in with the Phillies in 1912. He played with them until his retirement in 1920.
    Cravath got his nickname of Gavvy during his sem-pro playing days in Southern California. Apparently one day he hit a seagull while in flight with a batted ball and killed it. The Mexican fans in attendance shouted "Gaviotta!" which is the same as seagull in Spanish. The American fans thought it was a cheer for him and the name Gavvy stuck. After his baseball career Cravath was a judge. He landed the job despite no formal law training. He served in that positon for 36 years and had only two rulings reversed during that time.



    Reds go 10-7 in this set of games on this day in Reds baseball history.
