Playing in Boston on July 12, 1905‚ the Reds score 7 runs in the 6th to beat the Boston Beaneaters (now know as the Atlanta Braves)‚ 15-3 in the first of 2. Rookie Charley Malay hits his only career homer‚ a-3-run home run‚ off Patsy Flaherty.

Because of the intense heat‚ Reds manager Joe Kelley wants game 2 to be limited to 7 innings‚ but Boston manager Fred Tenney insists on 9, so the Braves win‚ 3-2. The next day‚ however‚ game 2 of the double header will be postponed till August.
