On September 29 , 1973 — 1973 – Hank Aaron hammers his 713th career homer, one shy of Babe Ruth’s record. It’s a three-run shot off Jerry Reuss, part of a 7-0 Atlanta decision . The next day, Dave Roberts and Don Wilson hold Aaron to three singles and the season ends with a 5-3 Astros win in the last game of manager Leo Durocher’s career.
