1937 Frank Demaree goes 6-for-7 (three doubles and three singles) in the first game of a doubleheader, helping the Cubs edge the Cardinals, 13-12, in 14 innings. The Californian adds two more singles in Chicago's 9-7 victory in the Wrigley Field nightcap.
1966 Three seasons after trading future Hall of Famer Lou Brock to the Cardinals for Ernie Broglio, the Cubs send the beleaguered right-hander to their PCL farm team in Tacoma (WA), where he will never be called to the major leagues again. During his dismal tenure with Chicago, the former 20-game winner compiled a woeful 7-19 record and an ERA of 5.40.
1998 Defeating the Orioles 1-0, the Yankees improve their record to 61-20, equaling the best 81-game start in major league history. The mark matches the record of the 1902 Pittsburgh Pirates and the 1907 Chicago Cubs.
