Did You Know?
  • This was a 10-inning no-hitter that could have been a perfect game but for one hit batter. With two outs in the ninth inning umpire Cy Rigler called a ball on what should have been strike three on opposing pitcher George McQuillan and Wiltse hit McQuillan in the arm with his next pitch to end his bid for a perfect game.
  • The Giants finally scored the winning run in the bottom of the 10th on a single by Cy Seymour, a two-base error by third baseman Eddie Grant on a bunt by Spike Shannon, and an Al Bridwell infield single that was misplayed by shortstop Ernie Courtney.
  • Wiltse later claimed that Rigler felt so bad about not calling strike three on McQuillan that every time he bumped into him on the street Rigler would give him a cigar.
