YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN THERE!!!

1896 Phillies outfielder Ed Delahanty homers four times in a loss to the Chicago Colts.

1963 Early Winn, now 71 years old, throws five innings to earn his 300th win – this one over the Kansas City Athletics. (Not totally true. Wynn was only 51. Okay, 43.)

1977 A game I remember watching from my home in Buffalo Grove… The Cubs and Mets game is suspended as there is a massive blackout in New York City.

2013 Tim Lincecum blanks the Padres, 9 – 0, without allowing a hit. The Giant also throws more pitches in his no-hitter than any other to date – 148 pitches – to get the job done.

TRANSACTION WIRE:

1894 Baltimore sends Tony Mullane to the Spiders for John Clarkson.

1964 Washigton sends Bill Skowron and Carl Bouldin to the White Sox for Joe Cunningham and (later) Frank Kreutzer.

1987 Chicago sends Steve Trout to the Yankees for Bob Tewksbury, Dean Wilkins, and Rich Scheid.

2017 The two Chicagos make a trade – the White Sox send Jose Quintana to the Cubs for Eloy Jimenez, Dylan Crease, and two minor leaguers.
