August 26, 1922

THE NEW YORK TIMES, New York, August 26, 1922 

* Chicago Cubs vs. Philadelphia Phillies 
* Most runs in a single game record
 

This 18 page newspaper has one column headlines on page 7: "CUBS AND PHILLIES SMASH TWO RECORDS" "Chicago Team Wins Weird Game in Which 51 Hits Are Made, 26-23" with box scores.

Tells of the game between the Chicago Cubs and Philadelphia Phillies. The Cubs defeated the Phillies 26-23 as the Phils leave the bases loaded in the ninth. The total amount of runs, 49, is the major league mark for most tallies scored in one game. This is still a MLB record till this day.

Other news of the day. Light browning with some spine wear, otherwise good.
