In the nightcap of a twin bill at Griffith Stadium, White Sox right-hander Ted Lyons loses his no-hit bid when Bobby Veach hits safely with two outs in the ninth in the team’s 17-0 rout of the Senators. ‘Sunday Ted’ gem halts Washington’s outfielder Sam Rice’s streak of nine consecutive hits.

For only the second time in big league history beginning in 1916, the earliest year the records are available, the leadoff batters for both teams homer in their first at-bat and then add another round-tripper in the same game when Seattle’s Brad Miller and Tampa Bay’s Ben Zobrist each hit a pair of homers in the Mariners’ 5-4 win at Tropicana Field. Chuck Knoblauch of the Twins and Detroit’s Tony Phillips last accomplished the feat in 1994 at Tiger Stadium.

After his 8th-inning, game-tying solo shot off the Braves’ Bob Rush, Pittsburgh’s Roberto Clemente has compatriot Juan Pizarro right where he wants him – namely, ahead, 0-2, in the top of the 10th and thus poised to once again give up a game-winning home run to his fellow Puerto Rican. The two collaborated on a Clemente game-winner back on May 16, 1957and again last year on August 4th.
