  • 1914 — Babe Ruth breaks in with Boston, striking out in his first at bat, but pitching a 4 - 3 win over Cleveland. With the score 3 - 3 in the 7th, Duffy Lewis pinch hits for Ruth, singles, and later scores the winning run. Dutch Leonard strikes out four of the six batters he faces in relief.
  • 1985 — Nolan Ryan becomes the first pitcher to record 4,000 strikeouts, fanning Danny Heep in the 6th inning of Houston’s 4 - 3 win over the Mets. Ryan finishes with 11 strikeouts in seven innings but gets no decision. Bill Doran’s 5th hit drives home Dickie Thon in the 12th with the winning run.
