This day in baseball: Ruth moves to second

On June 20, 1921, Babe Ruth hit his 127th career home run, moving him past Sam Thompson into second place all time for career homers and 11 homers behind all-time leader Roger Connor.  His blast helped the Yankees on their way to a 7-6 win over the Red Sox in ten innings.
