1936 San Diego minor leaguer Ted Williams, pinch-hitting for the pitcher in the seventh inning in a game against the Angels, gets his first professional hit, a long single off the right-field fence at LA's Wrigley Field off Glen Babler. The 17 year-old Padres player stays in the PCL contest to replace the hurler he batted for, retiring the side in order, but will be removed from the mound in the next frame when he gives up two home runs.
2001 The Padres tie a National League record, hitting four sacrifice flies in one game. The last one, lifted by shortstop D'Angelo Jimenez in the sixth inning, gives the Friars a 6-5 victory over Colorado at San Diego's Qualcomm Stadium.
