2003 Blue Jay rookie Reed Johnson becomes the fourth major leaguer to end a game with a walk-off homer after having hit a round-tripper to start the contest for his team. The 26 year-old right-fielder drilled Shawn Estes' 3-2 pitch over the left-centerfield fence leading off in the bottom of the first frame, and then ended the 4-4 stalemate with a tenth-inning solo shot off Cubs' reliever Mark Guthrie.

2009 Matt Dermody, a Norwalk (IA) High School senior, strikes out every South Tama High batter who steps to the plate in a game shortened to six innings due to the state's mercy rule, invoked when a team leads by ten or more runs after five frames. The 6-foot-5 southpaw, recently drafted in the 26th round by the Pirates, will attend the University of Iowa, playing for the Hawkeyes, before signing with the Blue Jays in 2013.
