2016 – Francisco Mejia of the Lynchburg Hillcats went 0-for-3 with a walk against the Winston-Salem Dash to end his hitting streak at 50 games. It was the longest hitting streak in the minors since Roman Mejias had 55 in 1954.
2013 – Alfonso Soriano drove in a career-high seven runs in an 11-3 Yankees win. Soriano drove in six the day before, giving him 13 RBI in two games – the second-most in Yankees history. Hall of Famer Tony Lazzeri drove in 15 in two games in 1936.
2012 – Miguel Cabrera became the first player to reach 100 RBI during the 2012 season.
2009 – Felix Pie hit for the cycle and Baltimore set team records for extra-base hits (12) and doubles (9) in a 16-6 win over the Angels.
2008 – Chicago’s Jim Thome, Paul Konerko, Alexei Ramirez and Juan Uribe hit back-to-back-to-back-to-back home runs to lead the White Sox to a 9-2 win over the Royals. It was the sixth time in major league history four consecutive batters went deep.
1996 – The Braves called up Andruw Jones. He is believed to be the first player since Phillies pitcher Pat Combs in 1989 to start a season in A ball, then play in AA, triple A, and the majors in the same season.
1979 – Houston’s Joaquin Andujar threw a four-hitter and hit a two-run, inside-the-park home run to beat the Expos 2-1.
1970 – Minnesota’s Cesar Tovar tied a dubious record. He accounted for the Twins only hit against Washington, marking the fourth time he produced the team’s only hit in a game.
1960 – Washington pitcher Camilo Pascual hit a grand slam and earned the win in the first game as the Senators swept a doubleheader against the Yankees.
1958 – Cleveland’s Vic Power stole home twice in the same game. Power finished the 1958 season with three stolen bases.
