July 20, 1934: Tex Carleton Mows Down The Braves In Boston

On July 20, 1934, the Cardinals sailed to a 5-1 win over the Braves in Boston behind a brilliant pitching performance by Tex Carleton. The Cardinals hurler mowed down the first 20 men he faced before giving up a long ball to Wally Berger in the 7th. The shot broke up his no no, but it hardly rattled him as he sat down the next 7 men to pick up the one hit winner. The Cardinals offense was sparked by Ripper Collins, he went 2 for 4 with three ribbies in the contest. Carleton won 16 games for the Cardinals during the 1934 Championship season.
