1907-Walter Johnson wins the first of his 417 victories leading the Washington Senators to a 7-2 victory over the Cleveland Indians.

1985-Commissioner Peter Ueberroth announces the end of the two-day strike by the Major League Baseball Players Association as the players and owners reach a tentative agreement.

1992-Sergei Bubka, the world record-holder and defending Olympic champion, fails to clear a height in the pole vault at the Barcelona Games.

1995-British triple jumper Jonathan Edwards twice breaks the world record on his way to the world championship, becoming the first man to clear 18 meters and 60 feet in the event. After clearing 18.16 on his initial attempt to break the world record, he pushes the mark to 18.29, for 60 feet, 1/4 inches.

1999-Wade Boggs becomes the first player to homer for his 3,000th hit, connecting in rare style with a two-run shot in Tampa Bay's 15-10 loss to Cleveland. Boggs already had a pair of RBI singles when he homered off Chris Haney in the sixth inning for the milestone.

2004-Greg Maddux becomes the 22nd pitcher in major league history to reach 300 victories, leading the Chicago Cubs to an 8-4 victory over San Francisco.

2005-Justin Gatlin dominates the 100 meters at the world track and field championships, Helsinki, Finland. The 23-year-old Olympic champion wins in 9.88 seconds, 17-hundredths of a second ahead of runner-up Michael Frater of Jamaica. The margin of victory is the largest in the 10 world championships that have been held since the meet's inception in 1983.
