1959 In a 6-0 loss to the Giants, Wally Post becomes the first major leaguer to throw out two runners from the outfield in one inning. In the bottom of the first, the Phillies' outfielder nails Orlando Cepeda at second base and then starts a 9-6-3 double play on Daryl Spencer's fly ball to right field.
2004 With his seventh-inning triple in the Phillies' 14-6 win over Montreal at Citizens Bank Park, David Bell becomes the eighth player in franchise history, and the first since Gregg Jefferies in 1995, to hit for the cycle. The Philadelphia third baseman joins his grandfather Gus Bell (1951) as the only grandson and grandfather combination to have accomplished the feat.
