1948 Returning after serving his one-year suspension from baseball, Dodger manager Leo Durocher uses 24 players in a 9-5 loss to the Giants. The controversial 'Lip' had been suspended last April by commissioner Happy Chandler for an assortment of actions deemed detrimental to baseball.
1967 Rain postpones a game for the first time since the Dodgers opened its stadium in Chavez Ravine in 1962. The postponement of their scheduled game against St. Louis ends a streak of 737 consecutive contests at Dodger Stadium without a washout.
2000 Due to the umpires' equipment going to New York, instead of Cincinnati, the Reds' game against the Dodgers starts 27 minutes later than scheduled. A downtown store supplies the replacement gear, but due to heavy traffic, the goods arrive at Cinergy Field with the assistance of a police escort.
2016 Cubs right-hander Jake Arrieta tosses a no-hitter in the Cubs' 16-0 rout over the Reds at Cincinnati's Great American Ball Park. The Chicago ace becomes the second pitcher, joining Johnny Vander Meer, who threw consecutive no-hitters in 1938, to go unbeaten between no-no's, having not lost in his last 17 regular-season starts since his gem against the Dodgers last season.
