1989 The Bay area fans have a good day when the Giants and A's clinch their divisions. Oakland wins the American League West with a 5-0 victory over the Rangers, and San Francisco backs into the National League West title when the second-place Padres lose in extra innings to the Reds, 2-1.
1998 Padres' reliever Trevor Hoffman ties the National League saves record as he gets three straight outs in a 3-2 victory over Arizona. His 53rd save (out of 54 chances) matches the standard set by current teammate Randy Myers, who did it for the Cubs in 1993.
1998 Greg Vaughn's eighth-inning two-run round-tripper is the difference in the Padres' 3-2 victory over Arizona at Bank One Ballpark. With his 50th home run, the San Diego left fielder joins Mark McGwire, Sammy Sosa, and Ken Griffey, Jr. in reaching the milestone, marking the first time four players have accomplished the feat in the same season.
2002 In his first full season as a closer, John Smoltz, preserving a Braves' 3-1 victory over the Mets, converts his 54th save to establish a new National League mark. Randy Myers (Cubs - 1993) and Trevor Hoffman (Padres - 1998) had previously shared the record.
