SPORTLIGHT

July 31

1954 Joe Adcock hits four homers and a double to give the Milwaukee Braves a 15-7 victory over Brooklyn.

1963 The Cleveland Indians become the first American League club to hit four straight home runs and in an unlikely fashion. Number eight hitter Woody Held hits a two-out homer off Paul Foytack, pitcher Pedro Ramos follows with his second homer of the game, Tito Francona and Larry Brown s first major league homer finish the string. Foytack is the only major league pitcher to give up four straight home runs.

1972 Dick Allen becomes the first player since 1950 to hit two inside-the-park homers in a game as the Chicago White Sox beat Minnesota 8-1.

1983 Jan Stephenson beats JoAnne Carter and Patty Sheehan by one stroke to win the U.S. Women s Open.

1990 Nolan Ryan wins his 300th game, reaching the milestone in his second try, as the Texas Rangers beat the Milwaukee Brewers 11-3.

1993 Mike Aulby becomes the third player in PBA history to win a tournament by rolling a 300 game in the title game. Aulby beats David Ozio 300-279 in the Wichita Open.

1994 Sergei Bubka sets a world pole vault record for the 35th time in his career at a meet in Sestriere, Italy. Bubka soars 20 feet, 1 3-4 inches, adding a half-inch to his old mark set in Tokyo in 1992.

1994 Kenya s Moses Kiptanui sets a world record for two miles with a time of 8 minutes, 9.01 seconds at a track meet in Hechtel, Belgium.

2000 Dorothy Delasin becomes the LPGA s youngest winner in 25 years by beating Pat Hurst on the second extra hole to win the Giant Eagle LPGA Classic. The 19-year-old Delasin is the youngest winner on the tour since Amy Alcott took the Orange Blossom Classic at age 19 in 1975.

2005 Grant Hackett becomes the first swimmer to win four straight world titles in the same event, capturing another 1,500-meter freestyle. The Aussie stretches out his own record for world championship medals to 17.
