Find out what trade made the Cleveland Indians look genius, the number of games a pitcher can lose in a row and how a pitcher should have had a perfect game.
1977 – Willie McCovey of the San Francisco Giants is the first player to hit two home runs in one inning twice in his career.
1980 – Pitcher Jerry Reuss tosses a no-hitter, as the Dodgers defeated the Giants 8-0. Reuss only faces 28 hitters, and if shortstop Bill Russell doesn’t make a throwing error in the first inning, Reuss would have a perfect game.
1982 – The Braves match the record for most double plays in a game with seven in their 2-0 victory over the Reds.
1993 – Anthony Young establishes a new record for most consecutive losing decisions with 24. The Cardinals topped the Mets 5-3.
2002 – Montreal and Cleveland make a significant trade.
Montreal Expos get: Bartolo Colon
Cleveland Indians get: Lee Stevens and three prospects: Cliff Lee, Grady Sizemore and Brandon Phillips.
