1959 Sandy Koufax fans 18 batters to establish a new National League record for a nine-inning game in the Dodgers' 5-2 win over San Francisco at the LA Memorial Coliseum. The left-hander's performance equals the major league mark established in 1938 by Indians fireballer Bob Feller during a 4-1 loss to Detroit.
2010 The Dodgers swap a player to be named (infielder Tony Abreu) to the Diamondbacks for starter Jon Garland. The 31-year-old right-hander will post a 3-2 record with a 2.72 ERA in his six late-season starts with the team before signing as a free agent with San Diego.
2022 With Timmy Trumpet playing his entrance song, Narco, a five-year-old tune by the Aussie horn player and the Dutch EDM duo Blasterjaxx, Edwin Díaz jogs to the mound for the Mets, creating one of the most memorable moments in franchise history. The New York closer lives up to the hype, retiring the side in order on nine pitches to earn the save in the team’s 2-1 victory over the Dodgers at Citi Field.
