2000 For only the second time since 1900, three teams play in the same twin bill when the Indians beat the White Sox in the opener, 9-2, and then lose the nightcap to the Twins, 4-3 at the Jake. In 1951 at Sportsman's Park, the Cardinals played host to the Giants, winning 6-4 before bowing to the Braves, 2-0.

"I owe too much to this organization for the next two years to risk getting hurt for an incentive. My outing (Sept. 12) got rained out and the last inning of my last start got rained out, so for whatever reason, it wasn't meant to be. There's a lot bigger problems out there. I'm proud of my season." - PHIL HUGHES, explaining why turn down offer to pitch for $500,000 bonus

The right-hander turns down the club's offer, saying he also he would not have any interest in simply being given the bonus that is worth half-a-million dollars.
