Charley Schanz - Philadelphia Phillies

Charley Schanz – Philadelphia Phillies

In the first game of a twin bill on June 22, 1944, Charley Schanz gets the win when the Phillies blank the Boston Braves for 15 innings, matching the longest shutout in franchise history. Charley would later play in Boston in 1950 but for the Boston Red Sox, not the Braves.

Philadelphia right-fielder Ron Northey’s homer in the top of the frame scores the game’s only run in the 1-0 victory at Braves Field.
