On June 26, 2011 The Nationals confirm the hiring of Davey Johnson as their new manager, three days after the sudden resignation of Jim Riggleman. Johnson, who last managed in 2000 with the Los Angeles Dodgers, will take over tomorrow against the Angels. Meanwhile, interim manager John McLaren goes out a winner, as the Nats beat the White Sox, 2 – 1, to give him a 2-1 record during his stint as skipper; he is offered a job as a scout within the organization. Rookie 2B Danny Espinosa hits the key homer in the 7th inning while Livan Hernandez is the winner. The 68 year-old former skipper compiled an 1148-888 (.564) record during his 14 years in the dugout with the Mets, Dodgers, Reds, and Orioles, finishing lower than third place on only three occasions.
Melvin Mora signs a three-year extension with the Baltimore Orioles that will keep him with the club through the 2009 season. The new deal is worth a guaranteed $25 million and includes an option for a fourth year.

At Shea Stadium, the Mets lose a 25-inning night game to the St. Louis Cardinals, 4 – 3. Ken Reitz’s two-strike, two-out home run ties the game in the 9th. Two Mets’ errors lead to the Cardinals’ winning run, starting with an errant pickoff throw from Hank Webb that allows Bake McBride to score all the way from first. The Mets go to the plate 103 times, the only time the century mark has been reached in a major league game; the Cards are not far behind with 99 plate appearances. A record 175 official at-bats are recorded, with a major-league record 45 runners stranded. The seven-hour, four minute marathon is the longest game played to a decision in major league history. Only a thousand fans are on hand when the game ends at 3:13 a.m.
