YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN THERE!!!

1952 Rocket Ron Necciai fans 27 Welch (WV) Batters in the Appalachian League. One player reached on a drop third strike – else it would have been a perfect game.

1958 Stan Musial gets his 3000th hit of Moe Drabowsky of the Cubs.

2015 Indians starter Corey Kluber fans 18 in just eight innings, allowing one hit, before being pulled for a reliever in a 2 – 0 win over the Cards.

Also, it’s funky hits day… Bobby Doerr (1947), Fred Lynn (1980) and Fred Lewis (2007) all hit for the cycle. Joe Kuhel tied a MLB record with 3 triples (1937), and Billy Werber (1940) and Kirby Puckett (1989) tied records with four double games.

TRANSACTION WIRE:

1960 The Cubs acquire Don Cardwell and Ed Bouchee from the
Phillies for Tony Taylor and Cal Neeman.

2007: Florida sends reliever Jorge Julio to Colorado for
reliever Byung-Hyun Kim.
