1919 After both teams play a dozen scoreless innings at Ebbets Field, the Reds break out in the top of the 13th inning, scoring ten runs off Robins starter Al Mamaux, charged with only one earned run in his complete-game 10-0 loss in the Brooklyn ballpark. Cincinnati's right-hander Hod Eller, who tossed a no-hitter in his previous start, is the beneficiary of the blowout and also goes the distance to improve his record to 4-0. 

1956 Sal Maglie, obtained on waivers by Cleveland last season from the Giants, is shipped to the Dodgers for a hundred dollars after impressing Brooklyn in an exhibition game. The 'Barber' will post a 13-5 record and a 2.89 ERA for the eventual NL Champs, finishing second to teammate Don Newcombe in the balloting for the Cy Young and MVP awards.
1998 On the day the Marlins trade Gary Sheffield, Bobby Bonilla, Charles Johnson, Jim Eisenreich, and Manuel Barrios to the Dodgers for Mike Piazza and Todd Zeile, the team hangs on to beat the Cardinals at Busch Stadium, 8-7. In the first inning, the Fish connect for nine consecutive hits, a franchise record, and score seven runs, all without the help of their recently departed teammates.
