1977 Fearing for the safety of his left fielder, Orioles manager Earl Weaver, trailing 4-0, pulls his team off the field when his request to remove the tarp covering the Blue Jays' bullpen area is declined by third base ump Marty Springstead. After waiting for 15 minutes in a light rain for the O's to return, the Exhibition Stadium contest is forfeited to the home team by the umpires.
1990 Brothers Billy andáCal Ripken, in the first of the two times they will accomplish the feat, both homer in the same game. The siblings' home runs are overshadowed byáKelly Gruber's three run round-tripper in the ninth inning that gives the Blue Jays a 4-3 walk-off victory over the Orioles at the Skydome.
2010 At Fenway Park, Jose Bautista establishes a new Blue Jay record for home runs in a season when he hit his 48th, a two-run blast on a 3-2 fastball thrown by Michael Bowden. The 29 year-old outfielder, who has never gone deep more than 16 times in a year, breaks the mark established by George Bell in 1987.
