1906 — Jack Taylor of the Chicago Cubs was chased by Brooklyn in the third inning, ending a streak of 187 complete games and 15 relief games that Taylor had finished without relief help.

1910 — The Brooklyn Dodgers and the Pittsburgh Pirates played to an 8-8 tie. Each team had 38 at-bats, 13 hits, 12 assists, two errors, five strikeouts, three walks, one hit batsman and one passed ball.

1931 — Tony Cuccinello of the Cincinnati Reds had six hits in six at-bats in the first game of a doubleheader at Boston. Cuccinello had a triple, two doubles and three singles to knock in five runs as the Reds won 17-3.

1948 — Satchel Paige, 42, pitched his first major league complete game against the Chicago White Sox. Paige gave up five hits en route to 5-0 Cleveland victory.

1969 — Jim Palmer of the Orioles, plagued by arm trouble the year before, threw an 8-0 no-hitter against the Oakland A's in Baltimore.

1978 — The Baltimore Orioles benefited from the rain-out rule. The Orioles were leading New York 3-0 after six innings but the Yankees scored five runs in the top half of the seventh. Heavy rains ended the game in the bottom half of the inning and the score was reverted to the end of the last completed frame giving the Orioles the triumph. This rule was changed in 1980.

1979 — St. Louis' Lou Brock reached the 3,000-hit plateau with an infield hit off Chicago Cubs pitcher Dennis Lamp. St. Louis won the game 3-2.

2004 — J.T. Snow, Giants, hit three home runs, had four RBIs, and scored five runs to power San Francisco to a 16-6 rout of Philadelphia.

2004 — Kansas City rookies Abraham Nunez and John Buck both hit grand slams to lead the Royals past the Oakland Athletics 10-3. It was the first time in club history the Royals have hit two grand slams in one game — which also ties a major league record. Buck and Nunez were the first rookie teammates to hit grand slams in the same game since the rookie rule went into effect in 1957.

2005 — New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera blew his first save since April 6 in a 7-5 win over Texas. Rivera had converted a career-best 31 consecutive saves before allowing Kevin Mench's two-run, game-tying single in the ninth.

2006 — Travis Hafner tied Don Mattingly's single-season grand slam record with his sixth of the year as Cleveland routed Kansas City 13-0.

2009 — Jonny Gomes homered in his first three at-bats in Cincinnati's 7-0 victory over Washington. Gomes hit two-run homers in the second and fourth innings and added a solo shot in the sixth before striking out in the eighth. It was the second three-homer game of his career.

2010 — Knuckleballer R.A. Dickey threw a 1-0 one-hitter, allowing a sixth-inning single to pitcher Cole Hamels, and the Mets shut out the Phillies once again. The Mets blanked the high-scoring Phillies for the fourth straight time at Citi Field.

2013 — Paul Goldschmidt hit the first pitch of the 11th inning for a game-ending home run after leading off the ninth with a tying homer, to help Arizona beat Baltimore 4-3 with a walk off blast for the second straight night. Arizona won the series opener yesterday when Adam Eaton hit the first pitch of the ninth inning into the pool in right field.
