Hall of Famer Amos Rusie, who had up to that point won 245 games, he would not win another. Meanwhile Christy Mathewson, who had never won a major league game, would go on to win 373.

Ah man, I knew that one. :~(

My wife was in the hopsital from Wed to Saturday so I had other things to worry about. She should be fine, some kind of viral or bacterial infection of the small intestine. She's doing a lot better now. ;-D
