On September 13, 1997 — The Dodgers drop a 5 – 1 decision to the Astros as Tom Candiotti’s knuckleball does all sorts of tricks in the 1st inning. Candiotti hits three Houston batters in the frame, and another to lead off the 2nd, to tie a major league mark. C Mike Piazza also records two passed balls in the inning as the Astros score four of their five runs.
