Today in Phillies History for September 24th

Phillies' All-time Record for Today:

48 wins, 55 losses, and 0 ties (for a winning percentage of 46.6 percent)

It Happened Today in:

1903: Hugh Duffy signed on to manage the Phillies starting in the 1904 season. He had previously managed in Milwaukee.
1911: The Cardinals score in the sixth inning off of Pete Alexander, ending his streak of 41 consecutive scoreless innings. The Phils won anyway, 8-2, Alexander's 27th win of the year
1919: Between games of a double-header, the Phillies honor first baseman Fred Luderus with a gold watch and diamond stick pin in recognition of his record 525th consecutive game played. He played in the final eight games of the 1919 season, but had to miss the first game of the 1920 campaign with lumbago, ending his streak at 533 games.
1944: The Phils and St. Louis play 15-innings of dead even ball at Shibe Park, which saw no runs scored in the 8th through 15th innings. The Cards scored in the 16th for the win, in which both starters went the distance.
1971: The Cubs' Milt Pappas strikes out the side on nine pitches. The victims were Greg Luzinski, Don Money, and Mike Anderson.
2011: The Phils drop both games of a double header to the Mets, stretching their losing streak to 8 games since clinching the Division title on Sep. 17. The streak set major league records for most consecutive losses by a team with at least 95 wins and by a team that clinched a division or league title.
