(Harvey Haddix of the Pirates during one of his 12 perfect innings against the Braves in Milwaukee. He lost in the 13th on an error and a home run, later changed to a double, by Joe Adcock.)

MILWAUKEE (UPI) – Harvey Haddix of the Pittsburgh Pirates pitched twelve perfect innings tonight but lost in the thirteenth. The first hit he yielded, to Joe Adcock, gave a 2-0 victory to the Milwaukee Braves. Haddix, who retired thirty-six men in a row, became the first major league pitcher to carry a perfect performance past nine innings.

Felix Mantilla was the first man to face the slender, 33-year-old curveball specialist in the thirteenth. He hit a grounder to the Pirates’ third baseman, Don Hoak, who threw it into the dirt at the feet of the first baseman, Rocky Nelson. Mantilla was safe on the throwing error. Haddix’ perfect string was snapped but the no-hitter was intact. Ed Mathews, the next man up, sacrificed the fleet Mantilla to second. Hank Aaron, the major’s leading batter, received an intentional base on balls.

Then Adcock connected. The hit barely cleared the right-center-field fence and the big first baseman hesitated a moment before starting around the bases. Then two boys crawled under the barricade and snatched the ball. Adcock at first was credited with a home run, and the final score was announced as 3-0. But then he was declared out for passing Aaron between second and third base and his home run became a double. The jubilant Aaron, who had cut across the diamond without touching third, was sent back by his mates to touch third and then home.

Confusion developed immediately after Adcock’s blow cleared the fence. The umpires stopped the action as players swarmed out on the field. Aaron and Mantilla were ordered to retrace their steps and cross the plate. The National League president, Warren Giles, said later in Cincinnati that he believed the final score of the game eventually would be changed by official ruling to 1-0.

Seven major league pitchers have hurled, and won, nine-inning perfect games. Don Larsen of the Yankees did it most recently, in the 1956 World Series against the Dodgers. Until his downfall in the thirteenth Haddix had used a fast ball that was always on target and a curve that cleverly nipped the corners. The closest thing to a base hit during the regulation nine innings was Johnny Logan’s line drive in the third that the shortstop, Dick Schofield, speared on a leaping catch. Haddix fanned eight men. Haddix’ loss was his third this season and the toughest in baseball history.

The National League ruled that Joe Adcock was out for passing Henry Aaron. He therefore was credited with a double, not a home run, and the official score was 1-0. “It didn’t matter to me whether it was 1-0 or 1000,” Harvey Haddix said. “We lost the game, and that’s what hurts me most.”

1916      In Boston, Giants outfielder Benny Kauff is picked off first base three times by Lefty Tyler. The center fielder’s miscues don’t hurt the team as New York reels off its 14th consecutive road victory, beating the Braves, 12-1.

1925      In Chicago, Tiger outfielder Ty Cobb becomes the first player to collect 1,000 career extra-base hits when he doubles in Detroit’s 8-1 win over the White Sox. The ‘Georgia Peach’, who surpassed Honus Wagner’s record of 993 earlier in the season, will finish his 24-year major league career with 1,139.

1929      Giants’ Pat Crawford and Lies Bell of the Braves both hit grand slams in the same game in pinch-hitting appearances. New York beats Boston in the Polo Grounds contest, 15-8.

1930      During the nightcap of a twin bill, Joe Sewell strikes out twice facing White Sox southpaw Pat Caraway in Cleveland’s 5-2 victory over Chicago. The Indians’ infielder will be fanned a total of only three times in his 353 at-bats this season.

1937      Appearing as pinch hitters, Cleveland’s Billy Sullivan and Bruce Campbell both homer, marking the first time that two batters on the same team have hit pinch round-trippers in an American League game. The off-the-bench home run heroics prove to be the difference when the Indians beat Philadelphia at Shibe Park, 8-6.

1947      The record for the largest crowd to attend a single game in baseball history is set when 74,747 fans, not including the 1,140 people who get their money back when it turns out there is no place left to stand after buying standing room tickets, watch the Yankees beat Boston, 9-3, in a Monday evening tilt at the Bronx ballpark. The previous mark was set in 1932 at Cleveland’s spacious Municipal Stadium with a Sunday afternoon game attracting 73,592 patrons to witness Philadelphia’s 1-0 victory over the hometown Indians, a contest that takes only an hour and fifty minutes to complete.

1953      Six years after Jackie Robinson makes his major league debut, the Cardinals sign their first black player when Len Tucker agrees to a $3,000 professional contract. The 23 year-old Fresno State College student will play extremely well at the minor league level that includes stops in Peoria, Saskatoon, and Modesto, but the speedy outfielder slugger will never get the call from St. Louis.

1956      Reds starter John Klippstein, Hershell Freeman, and Joe Black combine to hurl 9 2/3 innings of hitless ball in a losing effort to Milwaukee. Frank Torre’s 11th inning walk-off single scoring Hank Aaron is the difference in the 2-1 defeat at County Stadium.

1957      Cubs rookie Dick Drott establishes a franchise record when he strikes out 15 batters en route to a complete-game victory over Milwaukee at Wrigley Field. The 20 year-old right-hander’s mark, accomplished in his seventh major league start, will be matched by Burt Hooton (1971) and Rick Sutcliffe (1984), and will remain the standard for a nine-inning game until Kerry Wood’s 20-K performance in 1998.

1959      In another of Bill Veeck’s stunts, 3-feet 7 inch Eddie Gaedel returns to a major league field along with three other midgets. Arriving by helicopter and dressed as Martians, the quartet shakes hands with Nellie Fox and Luis Aparicio near second base on Comiskey Park’s infield and gives them toy ray guns as the PA announcer informs the crowd the ETs have arrived to help the somewhat short keystone combo in their struggle with giant earthlings.

1959      Pirates’ hurler Harvey Haddix pitches 12 perfect innings, but loses 1-0 to the Braves in the 13th inning. The heart-breaking winning run scores on a Don Hoak error, a sacrifice, a walk, and a two-bagger by Joe Adcock.

1959      The Yankees trade Jerry Lumpe, Tom Sturdivant, and right-hander Johnny Kucks, the first player in franchise history to throw a shutout in Game 7 of the Fall Classic, to the A’s in exchange for Hector Lopez and Ralph Terry. In three years, Terry will become the only other Bronx Bomber hurler to pitch a shutout in the seventh game of a World Series.

1964      In front of a meager crowd of 2,503 fans at Wrigley Field, the visiting Mets pummel the Cubs, 19-1. New York’s 25 year-old first baseman Dick Smith, batting leadoff, becomes the first player in franchise history to collect five hits in a game.

1976      Ken Brett’s no-hit bid ends with two outs in the ninth, when White Sox third baseman Jorge Orta hopes Jerry Remy’s slow roller will go foul. The no-hitter is lost when the ball stays fair, but the southpaw, who tosses 10 innings of two-hit ball, gets the victory when the Pale Hose beat California in the 11th, 1-0.

1990      Don Baylor, who will be the only Angel to win the American League Most Valuable Player Award [1979] until Mike Trout cops the honor in 2014, is inducted into the team’s Hall of Fame. The seasoned veteran averaged 23 home runs and 87 RBI, while batting .262 in six seasons for the California team.

1993      Carlos Martinez hits a fly ball to Jose Canseco that caroms off the Ranger outfielder’s head over the fence for a home run. The fourth inning solo homer will prove to be the difference when the Indians edge Texas at Cleveland Stadium, 7-6.

1996      Bobby Chouinard becomes the first player from Manila to appear in a major league game. The A’s hurler pitches five innings, giving up 8 hits and 5 earned runs in a 6-1 loss to the Orioles at Camden Yards.

1997      Frank Thomas, Harold Baines, and Robin Ventura hit consecutive home runs in the eighth inning of the White Sox’ 12-1 win over Milwaukee. Chad Kreuter adds another round-tripper in the seven-run frame, making Chicago the 16th team in American League history to hit four homers in one inning.

1997      For the first time in twenty years, two inside-the-park homers are hit in the same inning when Sammy Sosa of the Cubs and the Pirates infielder Tony Womack both circle the bases for round-trippers five minutes apart in the sixth frame of the Cubs’ 2-1 victory at Three Rivers Stadium. Ranger teammates Bump Wills and Toby Harrah hit back-to-back inside-the-park home runs on consecutive pitches at Yankee Stadium in 1977.

2000      At Yankee Stadium, the game against Boston is delayed when a fan falls from the upper deck and remains motionless for five minutes on the screen behind home plate. The 24 year-old man suddenly sits up and raises both arms high, and then is promptly arrested on a disorderly conduct charge.

2004      In the Pirates’ 11-8 win over St. Louis at Busch Stadium, Daryle Ward hits for the cycle with a two-run double in the first, a run-scoring triple in the fourth, a three-run homer in the fifth, and a single in the ninth. The Pirates first baseman and his dad Gary become the first father-son combination in major league history to hit for the cycle, with the elder Ward accomplishing the feat 24 years ago with Minnesota.

2006      Brandon Webb becomes the first Diamondback to start the season 8-0. The 27 year-old right-hander, who signed a $19.5 million, four-year contract in the offseason, beats the Reds at Great American Ball Park, 3-0, for his second consecutive shutout.

2006      Derek Jeter, with a dribbler up the third-base line for an infield single off KC’s Scott Elarton, becomes the eighth player in Yankee history to collect 2,000 career hits. The 31 year-old shortstop joins Yogi Berra, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle, Don Mattingly, Babe Ruth, and Bernie Williams in reaching the milestone.

2008      At Citizens Bank Park, Phillies second baseman Chase Utley homers and drives in six runs in the 20-5 rout of the Rockies. Philadelphia bats around three times, including two six-run innings, during their 19-hit attack against Colorado.

2011      Tossing a scoreless 19th inning in the Phillies’ 5-4 win over Cincinnati at Citizens Bank Park, Wilson Valdez becomes the first position player to record a major league victory since Brent Mayne accomplished the feat in 2000 with Colorado. The 33 year-old second baseman also became the first person to start the game in the field and then be credited with the win as a pitcher since Babe Ruth took the mound on October 1, 1921 after starting the game in left field.

2013      Twenty-year and 95 days old rookie shortstop Jurickson Profar becomes the youngest player in 55 seasons to start a major league career with a home run when he goes deep off Seattle’s starter Hisashi Iwakuma in the Rangers’ 4-3 loss at Safeco Field. In 1958, Lou Klimchock accomplished the feat for the A’s at the age of 18 years, 348 days.

2016      Wade Boggs became the tenth Red Sox player to have his number retired by the team. The Hall of Fame third baseman’s number 26 joins 1 (Bobby Doerr), 4 (Joe Cronin), 6 (Johnny Pesky), 8 (Carl Yastrzemski), 9 (Ted Williams), 14 (Jim Rice), 27 (Carlton Fisk), 45 (Pedro Martinez), and 42 (Jackie Robinson) on Fenway’s historic right field facade.
