1909 - Cleveland shortstop Neal Ball pulled off the first unassisted triple play in modern major league history.
1910 - Cy Young registered his 500th career victory as the Cleveland Indians beat the Washington Senators 5-4 in 11 innings.
1933 - Rick Ferrell of the Boston Red Sox hit a home run off brother Wes, pitching for the Cleveland Indians. Wes also homered in that game, marking the only time the two connected in the same contest.
1960 - Juan Marichal broke in with the San Francisco Giants by pitching a one-hit, 2-0 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies.
1974 - Dick Bosman of the Cleveland Indians pitched a no-hit, 4-0 victory over the world champion Oakland A's.
1982 - In the first Old-timer's All-Star Classic, played at Washington's RFK Stadium before 29,000 fans, the AL won 7-2. Luke Appling, 75, led off for the AL and hit a home run over the shortened left-field fence off Warren Spahn.
1989 - Cleveland's Joe Carter had the fourth three-home run game of his career, tying Lou Gehrig's AL record. He also drove in six runs, powering the Indians past the Minnesota Twins 10-1.
1994 - The Kingdome, home of the Seattle Mariners, was closed after four ceiling tiles fell nearly 180 feet into the stands behind home plate. The Mariners were forced into a 22-day road trip before the season was cut short by the players' strike.
2001 - Randy Johnson struck out 16, a major league record for a reliever, and came within four outs of combining with Curt Schilling on a no-hitter as Arizona beat San Diego 3-0 in the completion of their suspended game. Wiki Gonzalez hit an opposite-field single to right with two outs in the eighth for the Padres.
2005 - Boston won its second straight 1-0 game, holding Kansas City to four hits. The last time the Red Sox won two straight 1-0 games at Fenway was 1916, when the ballpark was 4 years old. Babe Ruth beat the New York Yankees on June 22 and Ernie Shore edged the Philadelphia Athletics the next day.
2012 - Edinson Volquez threw a one-hitter - allowing an infield single in the fourth inning - for the first complete game and shutout of his career as the San Diego Padres beat the Houston Astros 1-0. Matt Downs got the hit off Volquez, who struck out two and walked three.
2013 - Rookie Brad Miller hit his first two major league homers and drove in five runs, and Seattle overcame rookie Brandon Barnes' cycle in a 10-7 win over Houston. After doubling in the eight to complete his cycle, Barnes singled in the ninth to finish 5 for 5 and become the first Astro to collect five hits since Hunter Pence in May 2008.
