1955 Duke Snider blasts three home runs off different Braves' hurlers, accounting for six runs in the Dodgers' 11-8 win over Milwaukee. Jackie Robinson, Pee Wee Reese, and Roy Campanella also homer in the Ebbets Field contest, helping Brooklyn set a franchise record with six home runs.
1962 In the nightcap of LA's sweep of a twin bill at Shibe Park, Don Drysdale beats the Phillies for the 13th consecutive time, continuing a streak that started four seasons ago. However, after today's 8-5 victory, the 25-year-old Dodger right-hander will drop his next seven decisions against Philadelphia.
1997 When Wilton Guerrero scurries to pick up pieces of his shattered bat after grounding out to start the game, home plate ump Steve Ripley becomes suspicious and discovers that the rookie used an altered bat. Crew chief Bruce Froemming immediately ejects the Dodgers' second baseman from the contest, and the 21-year-old infielder will also receive an eight-day suspension and a $1,000 fine for using a corked bat.
