1951 Hank Borowy, giving up five hits and walking four batters, becomes the first pitcher in major league history to surrender nine runs without recording an out when he appears in relief in the Tigers 20-9 loss to the Browns at Sportsman's Park. In 2014, the Detroit right-hander dubious feat will be matched in an exhibition game when the nine batters White Sox starter Jose Quintana faces reach base and eventually score in the team's 16-6 loss to the A's at Camelback Ranch.
1998 Braves right-hander Greg Maddux wins his 200th career game, beating the Giants at Turner Field, 8-4, in a contest where all of Atlanta's nine hits are doubles. The 33-year-old All-Star hurler will finish his 23-year Hall of Fame career with a 355-227 (.610) won-loss record.
