Ferrell had stormed off the mound in his previous start, as well, after the Senators got three cheap hits Ferrell felt were playable. According to Red Sox Century, Ferrell later says he thought manager Joe Cronin was waving him off the field and claims a mysterious "woman in red" can back up his story. Why can't today's players respect the game like all the old-timers did?
1986 - Spike Owen becomes the first major league player in 40 years to score six runs in a game as the Red Sox rout Cleveland 24-5. Boston scores 12 times in the top of the sixth.
