2001 Sammy Sosa sets a major league record with his third three-homer game of the season, hitting #'s 56, 57, and 58 off Astros' rookie Tim Redding. Slammin' Sammy also accomplished the feat against the Rockies (August 9) and the Brewers (August 22).
2007 At Petco Park, the Rockies beat the Padres, 7-3, for their 84th win of the season to break a club record. Jeff Francis, who gives up seven hits and two runs in his eight innings of work, ties Kevin Ritz (1996) and Pedro Astacio (1999) for club victories and establishes a new franchise mark for left-handers, winning his 17th game of the campaign.
2007 Milton Bradley tears an anterior cruciate ligament when his manager Bud Black spins him to the ground to keep him from going after umpire Mike Winters in the eighth inning of a 7-3 loss to the Rockies. The Padres' left fielder will miss the rest of the season due to the injury, and baseball suspends the first base ump for the remainder of the season without pay for his actions during the confrontation.
