YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN THERE!!!

1884 Chicagos Larry Corcoran throws his third no-hitter…

1922 Chicago’s Ray Schalk collects four hits and completes the cycle. The White Sox top the Tigers, 9 – 5.

1936 Browns pitcher Tommy Thomas gets tagged for six homers in a 10 – 6 loss to the Yankees. (They should have pulled him sooner, no?) The last two were back-to-back shots in the seventh by Joe DiMaggio and Lou Gehrig.

1958 An Ed Fitz Gerald flair with two outs in the ninth lands just inside the right field foul line, ruining Billy Pierce’s perfect game shot… Pierce settled with a one-hitter.

1963 Johnny Callison’s four hits complete the cycle. The Phillies clocked the Pirates, 13 – 4.

1973 Joe Torre goes four for four – and completes the cycle in a 15 – 4 win over the Pirates.

1980 Dodger Jerry Reuss trims the Giants, 8 – 0 without allowing a hit. Bill Russell’s first inning error was the only blip.

1985 Jeffrey Leonard’s cycle on four hits includes a trip around the bases with one flap down against the Reds… (the Reds won, though, 7 – 6.)

1986 Robby Thompson is thrown out trying to steal four times, a record.

1993 Anthony Young sets a record by losing his 24th straight decision – a record that eventually reaches 27 games.

2008 Carlos Delgado’s three hits include a double and a pair of homers – a three run shot and a grand slam – leading to nine RBI in the first game of a double header against the Yankees. The Mets won, 15 – 6.
