This day in baseball: One hundred-loss matchup

For the second time in major league history, two one hundred-loss teams faced one another on October 6, 1923.  The 52-100 Beaneaters beat the 50-102 Phillies, 5-4, in the first game of a doubleheader.  Boston had also been part of the first one hundred-loss matchup when the 50-100 club played 45-103 Brooklyn in 1905.
