YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN THERE!!!

1905 Ty Cobb, not yet 19-years-old, rips a double off of Jack Chesbro for his first major league hit.

1912 Earl Hamilton tosses a no-hitter as the Browns top the Tigers, 5 – 1. Cobb reached on a walk, advanced on an error and scored on a fielder’s choice to ruin the shutout. Odd fact? It was the first no-hitter where the pitcher failed to strike out a batter.

1916 Boston’s Dutch Leonard fans three, walks two, but doesn’t allow a hit in a 4 – 0 win over the Browns.

1921 Pirate Dave Robinson’s four hit day completes the cycle in an 8 – 2 win over Brooklyn. He made an out to open the second, then homered, doubled, singled, and finished with a triple in the eighth inning.

1941 Lon Warneke’s no hitter (two Ks, one walk) allows the Cards to edge the Reds, 2 – 0.

1953 Jim Pendleton hits three of the Boston Braves’ record eight homers in the first game of a doubleheader. The Braves hit four more off the Pirates in game two, setting a record for doubleheaders, too.

1960 Speaking of DH batting feats, Pete Runnels gets ten hits in a twin bill, six (for seven) in the first game.

2015 Cub Jake Arrieta no hits the Dodgers as Chicago wins, 2 – 0. Arrieta fanned twelve and walked just one (Jimmy Rollins in the sixth).

TRANSACTION WIRE:

1946 The White Sox signed amateur free agent pitcher Bob Buhl.

1976 Oakland purchased 1B Willie McCOvey from the Padres.

1982 Houston sent Don Sutton to the Brewers for three players to be named later. Two of them, you heard of: Kevin Bass and Frank DiPino.

1990 Houston sent Larry Anderson to the Red Sox for Jeff Bagwell.
