Aug. 4
1910 - Jack Coombs of the Philadelphia A's and Ed Walsh of the Chicago 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.
1955 - Chicago's Ernie Banks hit three home runs at Wrigley Field against three Pirates pitchers to lead the Cubs to an 11-10 win.
1963 - Mickey Mantle, batting for the first time in two months after breaking his left foot, hit a pinch home run and the Yankees beat the Baltimore Orioles 11-10 for a doubleheader split.
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 Chicago. 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 a singled.
1985 - Tom Seaver, 40, became the 17th 300-game winner in major league history with a six-hitter - all singles - and the Chicago 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.
1985 - Rod Carew of the California Angels got his 3,000th hit in a 6-5 win over the Minnesota Twins, his first major league team.
1989 - Dave Stieb of the Toronto Blue Jays, who lost consecutive no-hit bids with two outs in the ninth inning last September, came within one out of a perfect game before settling for a two-hit 2-1 victory over the New York Yankees. Roberto Kelly's double spoiled Stieb's bid.
1997 - Brad Radke of Minnesota posted his 12th straight victory, pitching seven strong innings in the Twins' 9-3 win over Toronto. Radke became the third pitcher since 1950 to win 12 consecutive starts.
2006 - Chase Utley went 0-for-5 night in Philadelphia's 5-3 victory over the New York Mets, ending a 35-game hitting streak that tied him for the 10th longest in major league history and the fourth longest in National League history.
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 reach 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.
