  • 1932 - To save train fare for the single-date appearance, Connie Mack takes along just two A’s pitchers to Cleveland. Lew Krausse the A’s starting pitcher, gives up four hits in the first inning and his replacement, Eddie Rommel pitches 17 innings in relief, giving up a record 29 hits, but wins 18-17. Cleveland’s Johnny Burnett sets a major-league record by collecting nine hits in 11 at bats, while the A’s Jimmie Foxx strokes six hits, including three home runs for a record-tying 16 total bases.
  • 1999 - For his 4th loss in a row, the Diamondbacks fail to score for Randy Johnson, this time falling, 2 - 0, to Tim Hudson and the Oakland A’s.
