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 Carner and Patty Sheehan by one stroke to win the U.S. Women's Open.
