July 10, 1932

Indians’ outfielder Johnny Burnett collects a record nine hits on 11 at-bats in an 18-inning game in which the A’s outscore the Tribe, 18-17. After replacing A’s starter Lew Krausse in the second inning, Ed Rommel, who gives up a record 29 hits, is forced to pitch 17 innings in relief to get the victory when owner/manager Connie Mack, trying to save train fare, brings only two pitchers.
