1941 -- Lefty Grove's 20-game consecutive win streak at Fenway Park ended with a 13-9 loss to the St. Louis Browns. The streak spanned from May 3, 1938, to May 12, 1941.

1956 -- In a rare double one-hitter, Chicago's Jack Harshman outdueled Connie Johnson and George Zuverink of Baltimore as the White Sox beat the Orioles 1-0.

1964 -- Jim Bunning of the Philadelphia Phillies pitched a perfect game against the New York Mets on Father's Day. The no-hitter gave Bunning one in each league. The Phillies' Gus Triandos became the first catcher to handle no-hitters in both leagues.

2000 -- Eric Chavez hit for the cycle in Oakland's 10-3 win over Baltimore. Chavez doubled in the second inning, singled in the fourth, tripled in the fifth and finished off the cycle with a homer in the seventh.

2005 -- Jeff Larish matched a College World Series record with three homers, and J.J. Sferra drove in the game-winning run with a bloop single in the 11th inning as Arizona State rallied for an 8-7 victory and eliminated hometown favorite Nebraska. Larish's record-tying third homer tied it in the bottom of the ninth, and Sferra's single in the 11th punctuated the 4-hour, 7-minute game.

2005 -- The New York Yankees scored 13 runs in the eighth inning, sending 16 batters to the plate, to help overcome an early eight-run deficit and defeat Tampa Bay 20-11.

2006 -- Jose Reyes hit for the cycle in the New York Mets' 6-5 loss to Cincinnati.

2009 -- St. Louis' Tony La Russa joined Connie Mack (3,831) and John McGraw (2,763) as the only managers with 2,500 victories following a 12-5 win over Kansas City. La Russa improves to 2,500-2,177 in 31 years as a big league manager with the Chicago White Sox, Oakland and St. Louis.

2011 -- Minnesota tied a major league record by opening with eight consecutive hits against San Francisco's Madison Bumgarner, en route to a 9-2 win. Ben Revere had two hits and two RBIs to highlight an eight-run first inning.
