On September 16, 1972 — Glen Beckert goes 0-for-6 in the Cubs’ 18-5 victory over the Mets at Wrigley Field, leaving 12 men on base to set a new major league mark. The Chicago second baseman leaves the bases loaded in the first and seventh, strands two runners twice when he bats two times in the team’s seven-run third, and fails to plate other teammates in the fifth and seventh, the first of his two plate appearances in the frame.
