1925 Robins starter Burleigh Grimes accounts for seven outs in just three plate appearances in the team's 3-2 loss to Chicago, a 12-inning game played at Cubs Park. The Brooklyn right-hander follows grounding into two double plays by hitting into a 6-4-3-2 triple play.
1961 Jim Gentile hits his fifth grand slam of the year to tie the major league record established in 1955 by Cubs shortstop Ernie Banks. Each of the Orioles' first baseman's four-run homers has come with Chuck Estrada pitching for Baltimore.
1987 Chicago sends Dickie Noles to the Tigers for a player to be named later. Next month, the right-handed pitcher is returned to the Cubs as that player to be named later.
2002 Chicago first baseman Fred McGriff becomes the first player to hit 30 home runs in a season for five different teams (Blue Jays, Braves, Cubs, Devil Rays, and Cubs). The 'Crime Dog's' first inning PNC poke also sets a record for being the 42nd major league park in which he's gone yard, one more than Ellis Burks of the Indians.
