Today in Baseball History:

  • 2009 - Matt Holliday drives in 6 runs to propel the A’s to a 14 - 13 comeback win over Minnesota, the biggest in team history. Oakland trails by 10 runs at one point, but Holliday’s grand slam in the 7th ties the score; Jack Cust follows with a solo blast that provides the winning margin. Justin Morneau drives in 7 runs for the losers, including a grand slam of his own, in a wild game that features 8 homers and ends when Michael Cuddyer is thrown out at home trying to score on Michael Wuertz’s wild pitch. The A’s become the first team in 55 years to win after their starter (in this case Gio Gonzalez) gives up 11 earned runs.
