On a bad night at Fenway, Satchel Paige and the St. Louis Browns topped the Red Sox, 7-4.

The misery endured by a crowd of 19,049 was not confined to Paige blanking the Red Sox after they knocked starter Ned Garver out of the box in the sixth inning. And it wasn’t that the loss dropped Boston into third place in the American League.

Two rain delays, one of 16 minutes, the other lasting 1 hours, 46 minutes, likely chased a good number of the miserably soaked faithful out of the ballpark long before the final out was recorded at 1 a.m.
