In his major league debut, Luis Castro plays second base for Connie Mack's Philadelphia's A's in an 8-1 victory over the Orioles at Oriole Park. The 25 year-old Medellin native is the first and last player from Colombia to appear in the big leagues until Orlando Ramírez breaks in with the Angels in 1974.
At Kansas City's Municipal Stadium, the White Sox tie a modern major league mark for most runs scored by a single team in a game as they drub the A's, 29-6. The Red Sox also scored 29 runs against the Browns in 1950.
White Sox utility player Steve Lyons plays all nine positions during an exhibition game against the Cubs at Wrigley Field. 'Psycho', however, will not join the small list of players, that includes Bert Campaneris (1965 A's) and Cesar Tovar (1968 Twins), who have accomplished the feat in a major league game.
The Rays' 10-2 victory over Chicago concludes a 9-1 road trip, making it the team's winningest road trip in the 13-year history of the franchise. Tampa's success on the road translates into a 12-4 record overall, their best start ever.
