This Date In Baseball

July 5

1904–The Philadelphia Phillies ended the New York Giants' 18-game winning streak with a 6-5 10-inning victory.

1935–Tony Cuccinello of the Dodgers and brother Al of the Giants hit home runs in the same game to mark the first time brothers on opposing teams connected for homers. Brooklyn beat New York 14-4.

1937–Hal Trosky hit three home runs to pace the Cleveland Indians to a 14-4 victory over the St. Louis Browns in the opener of a doubleheader.

1937–Frank DeMaree of Chicago went 6-for-7 in the first game of a doubleheader, in which the Cubs beat the St. Louis Cardinals 13-12 in 14 innings. DeMaree had three doubles and three singles. The Cubs won the second game 9-7 and DeMaree had two more singles.

1947–Larry Doby became the first black to play in the American League. He struck out as a pinch-hitter as Cleveland lost 6-5 to the White Sox.

1961–Bill White hit three home runs and a double to power the St. Louis Cardinals to a 9-1 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers.

1991–The Colorado Rockies and the Florida Marlins were given final approval by baseball owners with a unanimous vote to join the NL in 1993.

1998–Roger Clemens became the 11th pitcher in baseball history to notch 3,000th strikeouts. Clemens needed five strikeouts to reach the 3,000 mark before Toronto's game against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. He struck out Quinton McCracken and Wade Boggs in the first inning and then got Mike DiFelice, Miguel Cairo and Randy Winn in the third to reach the milestone.

1998–Juan Gonzalez became the second player to top 100 RBIs before the All-Star break, homering in the first and seventh innings off Seattle's Randy Johnson to improve his major league-leading total to 101. Gonzalez ended with the second-most RBIs before the All-Star break in major league history. Hank Greenberg of the Detroit Tigers had 103 in 1935 en route to 170.

2000–Luis Gonzalez became the first player in franchise history to hit for the cycle as Arizona beat Houston 12-9.

2004–Eric Gagne's streak of 84 consecutive saves ended when he blew a two-run lead for the Los Angeles Dodgers, who came back to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 6-5 in 10 innings. Gagne relieved with a 5-3 lead at the start of the ninth but allowed pinch-hitter Luis Gonzalez's RBI double and Chad Tracy's run-scoring single on an 0-2 pitch. Gagne had not blown a save chance since Aug. 26, 2002.

2005–Boston's Manny Ramirez hit his 20th grand slam in a 7-4 win over Texas, passing Eddie Murray for sole possession of second place on the career list. Lou Gehrig hit 23.
