This Date In Baseball

Sept. 3

1917–Philadelphia’s Grover Cleveland

Alexander went the distance in both

games of the Phillies’ 5-0 and 9-3 sweep

of the Brooklyn Dodgers.

1947–Bill McCahan pitched a 3-0 nohitter

to give the Philadelphia Athletics a

3-0 win over Washington.

1947–The New York Yankees had 18

hits, all singles, in an 11-2 victory over

Boston at Fenway Park. Tommy Henrich

and Joe DiMaggio each had four hits.

1957–Warren Spahn of the Milwaukee

Braves recorded his 41st career shutout

with an 8-0 victory over the Chicago Cubs

at Wrigley Field. Spahn’s shutout set a major

league record for left-handed pitchers.

1970–Billy Williams of the Chicago Cubs

asked to be kept out of the lineup, snapping

his National League record of 1,117

consecutive games played. His record was

broken in 1983 by Steve Garvey.

1981–The Boston Red Sox and the Seattle

Mariners played the longest game in

Fenway Park’s history, 19 innings, before

the game was suspended with the score

tied 7-7. The Mariners won 8-7 in 20 innings

when the game resumed the next

day.

1986–Billy Hatcher’s homer in the top

of the 18th inning gave the Houston Astros

an 8-7 victory over the Chicago Cubs. The

teams played 14 innings the day before

and used a major league-record 53 players

in the game.

1990–Bobby Thigpen set a major league

record with his 47th save in a 4-2 Chicago

White Sox victory over Kansas City. Thigpen

broke the record set by Dave Righetti

of the New York Yankees in 1986.

2000–Kenny Lofton tied a major league

record by scoring in his 18th straight

game in the first inning of Cleveland’s 12-

11, 13-inning victory over Baltimore. Red

Rolfe set the record in 1939 for the New

York Yankees.

2001–Bud Smith became the 16th

rookie in modern history to throw a nohitter

and the second to do it to San Diego

this season in St. Louis’ 4-0 win. Smith was

making his 11th career start.

2006–Ryan Howard homered in his first

three at-bats, leading Philadelphia to an

8-7 victory over Atlanta in the first game of

a doubleheader. Howard raised his major

league-leading total to 52 and set a record

for second-year players.

2006–Albert Pujols homered in his first

three at-bats, helping St. Louis beat Pittsburgh

6-3. Pujols, with 42 homers, reached

40 or more for the fourth straight season.

2007–Pedro Martinez completed his

comeback from major shoulder surgery

and quickly went into the record books,

becoming the 15th pitcher to strike out

3,000 batters in his career. The New York

Mets’ right-hander needed only two strikeouts

to reach the mark. He fanned Aaron

Harang swinging at an 87-mph fastball for

the milestone as the Mets posted a 10-4

win over Cincinnati.

2007–Ichiro Suzuki homered in the third

inning of Seattle’s 7-1 win over the New

York Yankees to reach 200 hits for the seventh

consecutive season, tying the Wade

Boggs’ AL mark.

2008–Baseball’s first use of instant replay

backed an onfield call of a home run

for Alex Rodriguez during the ninth inning

of the New York Yankees game against the

Tampa Bay Rays. Third-base umpire Brian

Runge signaled a home run after A-Rod’s

towering, two-run shot off Troy Percival

caromed off the catwalk behind the foul

pole in left field. Rays catcher Dioner Navarro

protested the call, bringing manager

Joe Maddon out of the dugout. The umpires

convened before leaving the field to

check the replay on a monitor not far from

the field. It took 2 minutes, 15 seconds to

uphold the homer that gave the Yankees

an 8-3 lead.

2009–Jorge Posada hit his 20th homer

of the season and drove in four runs to

help New York beat Toronto 7-5. Posada’s

homer gave New York a major leagueleading

seven players with at least 20 – the

first time the Yankees have done that in

team history. The seven 20-homer players

matched a major league record set three

times previously.

2013–Pinch-hitter Travis Snider homered

in the ninth inning to lift Pittsburgh

to a 4-3 win over the Milwaukee Brewers

that clinched the Pirates’ first non-losing

record in 21 seasons. It was victory No.

81 for Pittsburgh, ensuring it will not finish

with a losing record for the first time since

it went 96-66 in 1992.

2013–Jon Lester outdueled Max Scherzer

and Boston beat Detroit 2-1, to end the

Tigers right-hander’s chance to become

just the second pitcher to open a season

with a 20-1 record. Scherzer (19-2), who

won his first 13 decisions, lost for the first

time since July 13 when Texas beat him

7-1. Roger Clemens is the only pitcher to

start 20-1. He ended up 20-3 with the Yankees

in 2001.

first half of the Gators’ 70-21 victory over New

Mexico State.

1994–Miami beats Georgia Southern 56-0,

home set from 1962-82.

Atlanta Falcons 23-20 in their first NFL game
