1972 At Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, Don Rose homers on the first pitch he sees in his first major league at bat. The right-hander's third inning round-tripper, which will be his only career round tripper and the last hit by an American League hurler for thirty years, proves to be the difference in the Angels' 6-5 victory over the A's, earning the 25 year-old his only victory in the big leagues.
1984 The Tigers equal the major league mark set by the 1916 Giants with their 17th consecutive road victory when the beat defeat the Angels at Anaheim Stadium, 5-1. The win, a Jack Morris four-hit complete game, also breaks the American League record of 16, established by the Senators in 1912.
