1923 -- Brooklyn's Jacques Fournier went 6-for-6 with a home run, two doubles and three singles as the Dodgers beat the Philadelphia Phillies 14-5.
1937 -- Chicago Cubs first baseman Rip Collins played an entire game without a putout or an assist.
1941 -- In a doubleheader against the Washington Senators, New York's Joe DiMaggio tied and then broke the American League record of hitting safely in 41 consecutive games. DiMaggio doubled in four at-bats in the opener and singled in five at-bats in the nightcap to break the record set by George Sisler of the St. Louis Browns in 1922.
1968 -- Detroit's Jim Northrup hit his third grand slam in a week as the Tigers beat the Chicago White Sox 5-2.
1990 -- Dave Stewart of the Oakland A's pitched the first of two no-hitters on this day, beating the Toronto Blue Jays 5-0 at the SkyDome. Fernando Valenzuela of the Los Angeles Dodgers duplicated Stewart's feat by throwing a 6-0 no-hitter against the St. Louis Cardinals. It was the first time in major league history that two no-hitters were pitched in both leagues on the same day.
1995 -- The Dodgers' Hideo Nomo struck out 13 Colorado Rockies in a 3-0 victory, giving him 50 strikeouts in four games. That broke the Los Angeles record of 49 over four games, accomplished three times by Sandy Koufax, the last 30 years earlier.
2003 -- Eric Byrnes hit for the cycle and matched a franchise record with five hits as Oakland beat San Francisco 5-2.
2007 -- Barry Bonds hit his 750th career home run in San Francisco's 4-3, 10-inning loss to Arizona.
2007 -- Aubrey Huff hit for the cycle in Baltimore's 9-7 loss to the Los Angeles Angels. Huff tripled in the second inning -- his 1,000th career hit -- doubled in the fourth, hit a three-run homer in the fifth and singled in the seventh.
2010 -- Whit Merrifield's RBI single with one out in the bottom of the 11th inning gave South Carolina its first baseball national championship with a 2-1 victory over UCLA in the College World Series. The Gamecocks won the last championship played at Omaha's Rosenblatt Stadium, the CWS' home since 1950.
