LCS Game 4: Teddys 8, Crawfords 0

Teddys lead series 3-1

WP: Alexander (1-0)
LP: Foster (0-2)
HR: Baker (1)


Pete Alexander's three-hit shutout was backed by 14 hits for the Teddys, who have now outscored the Crawfords this series 35-14.

Home Run Baker lived up to his nickname with a second-inning solo shot that opened the scoring. The score remained 1-0 through five innings, but the Teddys dinged Crawfords ace Bill Foster for two runs in the sixth and three more in the eighth before tacking on two more off Verdell Mathis in the top of the ninth.

Honus Wagner drove in four runs with a triple, double and single. Eddie Collins also went 3-for-5, scoring twice and gathering a pair of doubles.

Alexander struck out nine and walked two in the Teddys' second shutout of the series. The author of the first one, Christy Mathewson, will try to wrap up the series in Game 5.
