1941 Lefty Grove wins his 300th game, and his last, in a sloppy 10 – 6 win over Cleveland.

2015 Cole Hamels, Phillies ace, blanks the Cubs without allowing a hit. Before he can make another start for Philadelphia, Hamels is traded to Texas.

TRANSACTION WIRE:

1900 Pittsburgh, having already suspended their pitcher, assign his rights to Milwaukee and Connie Mack in a trade of sorts. A week later, Mack sends Bert Husting to the Pirates. Waddell pitches so well for Mack, the Pirates ask for (and receive) their pitcher back.
