The only other time before 1962 this happened was during a five game series at the end of the 1905 season, the Boston Beaneaters (a/k/a Atlanta Braves) played the Brooklyn Superbas (a/k/a Los Angeles Dodgers). The Beaneaters lost game one of the series to run their record to 50-100. The Superbas came into the series with a 45-103 record. When the series ended, the Beaneaters' record was 51-103
and the Superbas' record was 48-104.
Why, oh why, did they change their names????
