1968 Hank Aaron hits home run #500 off Mike McCormick, becoming the eighth major leaguer to reach this milestone. 'Hammerin' Hank's three-run homer over the left center field fence proves to be the difference as the Braves beat the Giants at Atlanta Stadium, 4-2.
1968 In a 6-1 Astros victory over the Reds at Crosley Field, backstop John Bateman ties the major league record with nine consecutive putouts from the start of a game. The Houston catcher equals the mark established by Art Wilson, playing for the Giants in 1911.
2005 Defeating their historical arch rivals, the Giants become the first team to win 10,000 games as a franchise by edging the Dodgers in LA, 4-3. The Giants, who started as the New York Gothams in 1899, have posted a 10,000-8,511 record during the club's 123 seasons in the National League.
