YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN THERE!!!

1912 Eddie Collins is the first player to record six stolen bases in a game.

1936 Hod Lisenbee gives up 26 hits and 17 runs in a complete game loss (8 innings) to the White Sox. Luke Appling, Mike Kreevich, and Zeke Bonura all had five hit games. It’s the second most hits allowed in a game (Eddie Cicotte allowed 29 in 17 innings), and the seventh most runs allowed in a game by a pitcher.

1942 and 1966… Paul Gillespie and John Miller homer in their first MLB at bats. What makes this cool is that both also homered in their LAST at bats three seasons later – the only two players to home in their first and last plate appearances.

1974 The Cards beat the Mets, 4 – 3, in 25 innings. The game lasts seven hours and four minutes – and 202 batters came to the plate that day…

1985 Pete Rose punches an Eric Show pitch into left center for a single – the 4,192nd hit of his career – to pass Ty Cobb and become the all time hit king.

1991 Kent Mercker, Mark Wohlers, and Alejandro Pena combine to throw a no-hitter to beat San Diego, 1 – 0.

1999 Twins pitcher Eric Milton tops the Angels without allowing a hit and fanning 13 batters.

TRANSACTION WIRE:

1901 The Chicago Orphans (now Cubs) purchased Davy Jones from Rockford.

1961 Houston signs amateur free agent Rusty Staub.

1964 Los Angeles signs amateur free agent pitcher Don Sutton.

1973 Philadelphia signs amateur free agent pitcher Willie Hernandez.
