1915: A Run with Zero At-Bats

Sunday August 22, 1915

According to Charlton’s Baseball Chronology at baseballlibrary.com, the Nats became the only team to ever score a run in an inning that did not include a single at-bat:

In the 2nd inning of game one of a doubleheader versus Detroit‚ the crowd sees the Senators score a run with no times at bat‚ the only time its ever happened. Chick Gandil and Merito Acosta walk; Buff Williams sacrifices‚ and George McBride hits a sacrifice fly‚ scoring Gandil‚ and the Tigers catch Acosta off 2B when OF Bobby Veach throws to Ossie Vitt. Washington’s Walter Johnson goes on to win‚ 8-1‚ and snap the Tigers’ 9-game win streak.
