1884 - Pud Galvin pitched the most lop­sided no-hit­ter in ma­jor league-his­tory as the Buf­falo Bisons routed the Detroit Wolver­ines 180. It is the sec­ond ca­reer no-hit­ter for Galvin. 1910 — Jack Coombs of the Philadel­phia A’s and Ed Walsh of the White Sox hooked up in a 16-in­ning score­less tie. Coombs struck out 18 and al­lowed three hits.

1929 — The Cleve­land In­di­ans, down to their last out trail­ing 6-5, scored nine runs in the ninth in­ning for a 14-6 vic­tory over the New York Yan­kees.

1953 — New York’s Vic Raschi set a record for a pitcher by driv­ing in seven runs in a 15-0 win over the Detroit Tigers. Raschi sin­gled in two in the sec­ond in­ning, dou­bled in three in the third, and sin­gled home the last two in the eighth.

1963 — New York’s Mickey Man­tle, bat­ting for the first time in two months af­ter break­ing his left foot, hit a pinch home run as the Yan­kees beat the Bal­ti­more Ori­oles 11-10 for a split of a dou­ble­header.

1982 — Joel Young­blood be­came the first player in ma­jor league his­tory to play and get a base hit for two dif­fer­ent teams in two dif­fer­ent cities in the same day. In the af­ter­noon, his hit drove in the win­ning run for the New York Mets in a 7-4 vic­tory at the Cubs. Af­ter the game, he was traded to the Mon­treal Ex­pos and played that night in Philadel­phia. He en­tered the game in right field in the fourth in­ning and later got a sin­gle.

1985 — Tom Seaver, 40, be­came the 17th 300-game win­ner in ma­jor-league his­tory with a six-hit­ter — all sin­gles — as the White Sox de­feated the New York Yan­kees 4-1 on Phil Riz­zuto Day. Seaver walked one and struck out seven, giv­ing him 3,499 in his 19-year ca­reer.

2007 — Alex Ro­driguez be­came the youngest player in ma­jor-league his­tory to hit 500 home runs with a first-in­ning homer in a 16-8 vic­tory over Kansas City. Ro­driguez’ homer came eight days af­ter the slug­ger cel­e­brated his 32nd birth­day, eclips­ing Jim­mie Foxx (32 years, 338 days). A-Rod be­came the 22nd player to reach the mark. 2010 — Alex Ro­driguez hit his 600th home run and be­came the youngest player to at­tain the mile­stone. His two-run, first-in­ning drive off Toronto’s Shaun Mar­cum put New York ahead, and the Yan­kees coasted to a 5-1 vic­tory over the Blue Jays.
