1963 In a 10-3 win over the Reds at Crosley Field, Mets outfielder Duke Snider hits his 400th career homer off of Bob Purkey. With his sweet left-handed swing, the future Hall of Famer will finish his 18 years in the major leagues with 407 round-trippers.
1965 Reds starter Jim Maloney, who strikes out 18 batters, no-hits the Mets for ten innings but loses 1-0 when Johnny Lewis connects for a homer in the eleventh in the Crosley Field contest. In August at Wrigley Field, the right-hander will again give up no hits through the first nine innings but records a no-hitter when his teammate Leo Cardenas connects in the top of the tenth, providing the only run in Cincinnati's 1-0 victory over Chicago.
1990 The National League announces plans to expand from 12 to 14 teams. The two new franchises that will begin playing in 1993 are the Florida Marlins and Colorado Rockies.
1998 With a 4-2 victory over Cleveland, the Yankees tie a major league record by winning or splitting their 24th consecutive series. The Bronx Bombers equal the mark shared by the 1912 Red Sox and the 1970 Reds.
