  • 1950 — The A’s Paul Lehner ties an American League record with 11 putouts in LF in a 13 - 5 win against the White Sox.
  • 2010 — Edwin Jackson throws the 4th no-hitter of the season as the Diamondbacks defeat their brethren from the 1998 expansion, the Tampa Bay Rays, 1 - 0.

Hinch decides to leave him in the game to grab his chance at history. It is the second time the Rays are no-hit this year, having been the victims of Dallas Braden’s perfect game six weeks ago.
