1941 - En route to 56, Joe DiMaggio hit in his 32nd consecutive game, going 3-for-3, including a home run, against the Chicago White Sox.
1942 - Paul Waner got hit number 3,000 - a single off Rip Sewell - but the Boston Braves lost to the Pittsburgh Pirates 7-6.
1952 - Brooklyn Dodger Carl Erskine pitched a 5-0 no-hitter against the Chicago Cubs at Ebbets Field.
1961 - Roger Maris' ninth-inning homer off Kansas City's Jim Archer was his 25th of the year, putting him seven games ahead of Babe Ruth's pace in 1927.
1973 - Cincinnati's Pete Rose and Willie Davis of the Los Angeles Dodgers both collected their 2,000th hits. It was a single for Rose against the San Francisco Giants and a home run for Davis against the Atlanta Braves.
1974 - Steve Busby of the Kansas City Royals hurled his second no-hitter in 14 months and gave up just one walk in beating the Brewers 2-0 at Milwaukee.
1977 - The Boston Red Sox hit five home runs in an 11-1 triumph over the New York Yankees. The five homers gave the Red Sox a major league record 16 in three games. Boston hit six homers on the 17th and five on the 18th, also against the Yankees. In the series the Yankees had no homers.
2001 - Ellis Burks hit three homers in a 10-9 Cleveland loss to the Twins.
2006 - San Francisco rookie Matt Cain carried a no-hitter into the eighth inning in the Giants' 2-1 victory over the Los Angeles Angels. Chone Figgins lined a single to center with two outs in the eighth to end Cain's no-hit bid. The 21-year-old Cain allowed the one hit and an unearned run while walking four and striking out 10.
2008 - Atlanta lost its league-record 22nd straight one-run game on the road when Texas rallied for a 5-4 victory. The previous mark was 21 by Kansas City during a stretch over the 2000-01 seasons. Atlanta's last one-run victory on the road was on Aug. 10, 2007.
2011 - John Hicks' RBI single in the seventh inning broke a scoreless tie and Virginia went on to defeat California 4-1 at the College World Series. Hicks' one-out base hit into center ended the longest scoreless CWS game in 24 years, and Steve Proscia followed with a sacrifice fly.
