1912 Ty Cobb goes 1-for-4 in Detroit's 4-1 victory over Washington at Navin Field. The Tiger outfielder's single is his 68th hit in 137 at-bats (.535) during July, the most ever collected in a single month by a major leaguer.
1963 At Cleveland Stadium, the Indians hit four consecutive homers in an inning when Woodie Held, Pedro Ramos, Tito Francona, and Larry Brown go deep in the sixth with two outs off Paul Foytack, recently acquired by the Angels. In Cleveland's 9-5 victory over the Halos, the former Tiger right-hander becomes the first major league pitcher to allow a team to go deep in four straight at-bats in a single frame.
1996 The Tigers deal first baseman Cecil Fielder to the Yankees for outfielder Ruben Sierra and minor league prospect Matt Drews. The swap marks the first time in major league history that a transaction involves players who both have more than 220 home runs.
