Today in Baseball History:

  • 1911 — At Philadelphia, the A’s Frank Baker hits for the cycle in a 5 - 1 win over the Yankees in game two of a doubleheader.
  • 1988 — Oakland P Gene Nelson steals a base while pinch running for Don Baylor in a 9 - 8, 16-inning win over Toronto, becoming the first American League pitcher to steal a base since John “Blue Moon” Odom in 1973. Jose Canseco’s three home runs are not quite enough, and the game is not decided until Mark McGwire connects in the 16th inning to end it. McGwire will hit another 16th-inning home run tomorrow.
