YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN THERE!!!

1919 Burleigh Grimes (Brooklyn) and Joe Oeschger (Philadelphia) go 20 innings in a game that ends in a 9 – 9 tie. Oeschger would join Brooklyn the following season and throw 26 innings in a 1 – 1 tie.

1922 Charlie Robertson throws a perfect game in just his fourth career start to beat the Tigers.

I wrote about it here.

1940 James “Tex” Carleton fires a no-hitter to beat the Reds, 3 – 0.

1944 Phil Weintraub has 11 RBIs and Mel Ott scores six runs in a 26 – 8 pounding of the Dodgers. Weintraub went 4 for 5 with two doubles, a triple, and a homer. Oddly, he was the third player to get at least 11 RBIs in a game – and no player had yet had a 10 RBI game.

For Ott, this was the second time he scored six runs in a game (he did it first in 1934) and got on base seven times (two hits, five walks).

1946 Bob Feller throws his second career no-hitter, a 1 – 0 win over the Yankees.

1961 Willie Mays slams four homers to help beat the Braves.

1969 Jim Maloney blanks the Astros, the third no-hitter in his career.

TRANSACTION WIRE:

1923 New York signs Columbia University slugger Lou Gehrig.

1951 Three Team Deal… The White Sox send Dave Philley and Gus Zernial to the Athletics. Philadelphia sends Paul Lehner to the White Sox and Lou Brissie to the Indians. The Indians sent Sam Zoldak and Ray Murray to the Athletics and Minnie Minoso to the White Sox.

1974 Kansas City sends Paul Schaal to the Angels for Richie Schienblum.

1989 The Yankees send Al Leiter to the Blue Jays for Jesse Barfield.
