SPORTLIGHT

Aug. 4

1925 Every player in each team s lineup has at least one putout in the Indians-Yankees game.

1945 Byron Nelson wins his 11th consecutive PGA Tour event, beating Herman Barron by four strokes. Nelson finishes the year with a record for most tournament wins (18) in a season.

1982 Joel Youngblood becomes the only player in major league history to play and get hits for two different teams in two different cities on the same day. In the afternoon, his hit drives in the winning run for the New York Mets in a 7-4 victory at Chicago. After the game, he s traded to the Montreal Expos and plays that night in Philadelphia. He enters the game in right field in the fourth inning and later gets a single.

1985 Tom Seaver, 40, becomes the 17th 300-game winner in major league history with a six-hitter all singles as the Chicago White Sox beat the New York Yankees 4-1.

1996 Laura Davies shoots a 6-under 66 for a two-stroke victory over Nancy Lopez and Karrie Webb in the du Maurier Classic.

1996 The Atlanta Olympic Games end with U.S. boxer David Reid s stunning gold-medal knockout, and the women Dream Team s romp over Brazil. Reid captures America s only boxing gold, knocking down Cuban Alfredo Duvergel, while the U.S. women roll to a 111-87 victory behind Lisa Leslie s 29 points. A record 11,000 athletes from 197 countries make it the biggest Olympics.

2002 Otylia Jedrejczak of Poland breaks the world record in the women s 200-meter butterfly, finishing in 2 minutes, 5.78 seconds at the European Swimming Championships in Berlin. She betters the mark of 2:05.81 set by Australian Susan O Neill in May 2000.
