YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN THERE!!!

1911 Heinie Zimmerman drives in nine runs on five hits (two homers) to help the Cubs clobber the Braves, 20 – 2. Zimmerman was the first to drive in nine in the twentieth century.

1938 Johnny Vander Meer tosses a no-hitter, beating the Dodgers in Brooklyn, 3 – 0.

1961 Norm Cash is the first to hit a homer that clears the right field roof in Detroit.

1988 Yankee Rick Rhoden is the first pitcher to be used as the starting DH in a game.

1990 Nolan Ryan throws his sixth no-hitter to blank the Athletics, 5 – 0. He is also the first to throw no-hitters in three different decades.

1995 Rondell White has six hits in seven at bats, scores five runs, and completes the cycle in a 10 – 8 win over the Giants in 13 innings. White tripled to get the cycle, then scored the winning run on a triple by Tim Laker.

2003 The Astros are forced to improvise when starter Roy Oswalt injures his leg. Five other relievers join in and complete a no-hitter to beat the Yankees.

TRANSACTION WIRE:

1937 Boston gets Ben Chapman and Bobo Newsom from the Senators for Rick and Wes Ferrell and Mel Almada.

1968 Atlanta sends Clay Carroll, Tony Cloninger and Woody Woodward to the Reds for Milt Pappas, Ted Davidson and Bob Johnson.

1969 Montreal sends Manny Mota and Maury Wills to the Dodgers to get Ron Fairly and Paul Popovich – then sends Popovich to the Cubs for Jack Lamabe and Adolfo Phillips. (I admit it, I was a Paul Popovich fan because, well, as a little kid he had my first name.)
