YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN THERE!!!

1891 Tom Lovett tosses a no-hitter for Brooklyn to beat the Giants, 4 – 0. Lovett fanned eight and walked three. It was the first Bridegroom no-hitter since Brooklyn joined the NL.

Lovett’s career is all over the map – never seemed to stay in one place very long. Will send along a summary of his career another day, though.

1925 St. Louis pitcher Johnny Stuart has one of the worst pitching lines ever – 16 hits 16 runs (12 earned) in 8.1 innings of relief. He didn’t take the loss – Flint Rhem was lifted with two outs in the first inning having already allowed eight runs to the Pirates. Only four pitchers ever allowed more runs in a single outing.

1947 Ewell Blackwell, who had thrown a no-hitter on June 18th, loses a second no-hitter in the ninth – Dodger Eddie Stanky broke the streak. It’s the closest anyone has come to duplicating Johnny Vander Meer’s two straight no-hitters.

1993 Carlton Fisk’s last game allows him to pass Bob Boone for the most games caught in a career.

TRANSACTION WIRE:

1901 Philadelphia releases Jimmy Slagle.

Slagle was struggling in Philadelphia – but he figured things out in Chicago where he was a member of the great Cub teams of last century’s first decade…

1926 St. Louis selects Pete Alexander off of waivers – lifting him from the Cubs.

1966 Trying to exact revenge some 40 years later, the Cubs purchased Curt Simmons from the Cardinals…

1985 Toronto sends Mitch Webster to the Expos for a player to be named later (Cliff Young).
