1954 In an 8-1 victory over the Reds at Connie Mack Stadium, Robin Roberts gives up a leadoff home run to third baseman Bobby Adams. The 27 year-old right-hander then proceeds to retire the next 27 consecutive batters in one of the most memorable games of his Hall of Fame career.
1960 The Phillies drop their third consecutive 1-0 decision, losing to Jim O'Toole and the Reds at Crosley Field. Giants' hurlers Jack Sanford and Sam Jones had shut out Philadelphia in the previous two days at Candlestick Park.
1985 A day before his 43rd birthday, Tony Perez becomes the oldest player to hit a grand slam when he goes deep off Phillies' reliever Dave Rucker in the sixth inning of the Reds' 7-3 victory at Riverfront Stadium. The 42-year-old pinch-hitter breaks the seventy-year-old record held by Pirates' third baseman Honus Wagner, and the new mark will last until Julio Franco, 46, hits a base-loaded round-tripper in 2004.
