SPORTLIGHT

May 24

1935 In the first major league night game in Cincinnati, the Reds beat the Philadelphia Phillies 2-1 before 25,000 fans.

1936 Tony Lazzeri of the New York Yankees drives in 11 runs with a triple and three home runs two of them grand slams in a 25-2 rout of the Philadelphia A s.

1967 The AFL grants a franchise to the Cincinnati Bengals.

1980 Bobby Nystrom s overtime goal gives the New York Islanders a 5-4 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers in Game 6 for their first Stanley Cup.

1981 The Indianapolis 500 ends in controversy when Mario Andretti, who finished second to Bobby Unser, is declared the winner because Unser broke a rule during a slowdown period near the end of the race. The decision is reversed, giving Unser credit for the victory, but he is fined $40,000.

1986 The Montreal Canadiens beat the Calgary Flames 4-3 in Game 5 to win their 23rd Stanley Cup. That puts the Canadiens one ahead of the New York Yankees for the most titles in major league team sports.

1988 The fourth game of the Stanley Cup finals between the Edmonton Oilers and Boston Bruins is postponed with the score tied 3-3 and 3:23 left in the second period when a power failure hits Boston Garden.

1990 The Edmonton Oilers win their fifth Stanley Cup in seven seasons by beating the Bruins 4-1 in Game 5. Goalie Bill Ranford, who limited Boston to eight goals in the series, wins the Conn Smythe Trophy for most valuable player in the playoffs.

1992 Al Unser Jr. wins the closest finish at the Indianapolis 500, beating Scott Goodyear by 43-thousandths of a second, barely half a car length. Lyn St. James, only the second woman to race at Indy, finishes 11th.

1995 Oakland s Dennis Eckersley becomes the sixth pitcher to record 300 saves, in a 5-2 win over the Baltimore Orioles.

2001 Jon Lieber of the Chicago Cubs tosses a 79-pitch, one-hit shutout in a 3-0 blanking of the Reds. It s the first shutout of the Reds in an NL-record 208 games.
