2006 The Dodgers, with their 4-0 blanking of the Marlins, win their sixth consecutive game and 17th in the last 18 contests. The stretch is the team's best run since the Brooklyn Superbas went 20-1 in 1899.
2020 Max Muncy hits the first leadoff sac fly in baseball history when he flies out to deep right field, scoring Chris Taylor, the Dodgers' ghost runner who stole third base on the second pitch of the tenth inning. Angels' reliever Keynan Middleton, who throws a perfect 1-2-3 inning, is tagged with the loss when the run proves to be the difference in the team's 6-5 loss in Anaheim.
