1968 The Cardinals clinch their twelfth National League pennant when the team beats Houston at the Astrodome, 7-4. The contest, which features Curt Flood collecting five hits, marks the final home run by Roger Maris, who will finish his 12-year major league career with 275 round-trippers.
1971 Astros rookie Larry Yount, making his major league debut, injuries his right shoulder in the ninth inning throwing his very first warm-up pitch of the game. The 21 year-old right-hander, Robin's older brother, will never get another chance to pitch in the bigs with his only major league experience consisting of that one ill-fated toss to home plate.
