1993 - The Montreal Expos retired their first number, No. 10 for Rusty Staub.

1996 - Chicago outfielder Tony Phillips went into the stands to confront a heckling fan during the White Sox's 20-8 victory at Milwaukee. Phillips, who already had changed into street clothes after being taken out of the game in the sixth inning, went after a 23-year-old fan in the left-field bleachers.

2005 - Morgan Ensberg hit three home runs and finished 4-for-4 with five RBIs in Houston's 9-0 victory over San Francisco.

2005 - New York's Tino Martinez hit two homers and drove in three runs in the Yankees' 6-4 win over Oakland. The two homers gave Martinez eight homers in his last eight games.

2011 - Jose Bautista hit three homers for the first time in his career, adding to his major league-leading total and sending the Toronto Blue Jays to an 11-3 victory over the Minnesota Twins. Bautista went deep in the third and fourth innings with solo shots and hit a two-run drive in the sixth to raise his season total to 16.
