YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN THERE!!!

1916 In the last game for both Hall of Fame pitchers, Christy Mathewson – the player manger of the Reds – faces Mordecai Three Finger Brown and the Cubs. Neither is around for the finish, but Cincinnati wins, 10 – 8.

1923 Yankee Sam Jones tosses a no-hitter to beat the Athletics, 2 – 0. Jones doesn’t strike out a single batter.

1993 Yankee Jim Abbott, who made it to the majors without a fully formed right hand,
throws a no hitter to beat the Indians, 4 – 0.

2002 Oakland, who had blown an 11 – 0 lead to Kansas City, gets a game winning home run from Scott Hatteberg to win their 20th straight game.

2017 Arizona’s J. D. Martinez joins a rather exclusive club by hitting four homers in a 13 – 0 win over the Dodgers. It was the second time this had happened in one season – Scooter Gennett of the Reds had done it in June.

TRANSACTION WIRE:

1978 The White Sox sign free agent outfielder Ron Kittle.

As with September 3rd, many of the transactions on this day are either players being released or players being named later…
