2004 – The Boston Red Sox become the first team in major league history to win a best-of-seven series after losing the first three games, by beating New York at Yankee Stadium, 10 – 3, in Game 7 of the American League Championship Series. Johnny Damon hits two home runs, including a grand slam in the 4th inning, backing up the solid pitching of Derek Lowe. Boston joins the 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs and the 1975 New York Islanders, both of the National Hockey League, as the only teams in the history of North American professional sports to overcome a 3-0 series deficit to win a seven-game series.

1926 – The Braves are at Ebbets Field with Brooklyn’s Hank DeBerry on third base, Dazzy Vance on second, and Chick Fewster on first. Babe Herman drives the ball against the right field wall, and DeBerry scores. Vance holds up, then rounds third headed for home. Fewster stops at third base. The RF throws home and traps Vance, who heads back to third. Herman slides into the base as Fewster steps off. Herman is out for passing a baserunner. Fewster, thinking he’s out, too, walks off with Babe, and gets tagged out. Vance, still on third base, later admits it was his fault, but Herman, who doubles into a double play, gets the blame.
