1997 In a deal that will have a significant impact on the team's future, the Red Sox obtain Jason Varitek and Derek Lowe when they trade Heathcliff Slocumb to the Mariners. Varitek, who will become Boston's third captain in franchise history, will contribute to the club's success in the next decade, including the world championships in 2004 and 2007.
2016 With the winning run on third with only one out and the team tied at 6 with the Mariners in the bottom of the 12th, Cubs skipper Jon Maddon goes to the bench, sending up poor-hitting pitcher Jon Lester to pinch-hit. The left-hander, a .051 hitter in 216 career at-bats, doesn't disappoint when he lays down a perfect squeeze bunt, giving Chicago a dramatic 7-6 walk-off victory at Wrigley Field.
