  • 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.
  • 2013 — Yusmeiro Petit of the Giants comes within one strike of a perfect game against the Diamondbacks at AT&T Park. Eric Chavez hits a single with two outs in the 9th to deprive Petit of his place in history, but he retires the next batter, A.J. Pollock, to end up with a 3 - 0 one-hitter.
