  • 2002 - The Oakland Athletics’ 20-game winning streak is snapped as Brad Radke pitches the Minnesota Twins to a 6 - 0 victory at home. The Athletics fall short of matching the second-longest winning streak in history. The Chicago National League teams of 1880 and 1935 both won 21 straight.
  • 2009 - Ichiro Suzuki gets his 2,000th Major League hit, a double off Gio Gonzalez in the 1st inning. He is the second fastest to the milestone, taking 1,402 games, 12 more than Hall of Famer Al Simmons. Ichiro’s Mariners lose to Oakland, however, as Scott Hairston hits a decisive grand slam in the 5 - 2 game.
