TOP HEADLINES

PHOENIX BEATS LOS ANGELES IN GAME ONE OF THE WESTERN FINALS

(Phoenix)   Devon Booker scored 40 points, grabbed 13 rebounds and added 11 assists as the Suns beat the Los Angeles Clippers Sunday night 120 – 114 in game 1 of the Western Conference finals. Phoenix played without guard Chris Paul, who sat out because of COVID – 19 health and safety protocols.

“I don’t understand why everyone’s acting surprised at this point,” Suns forward Jae Crowder said about Booker’s big day. “This is his first time on this stage but he’s capable. He’s more than capable. He’s more than ready. He prepares like no other.”

Deandre Ayton had 20 points and nine rebounds for the Suns. Cameron Payne started for Paul and had 11 points and nine assists.

“I have no excuse,” Clippers coach Tyronn Lue said. “I thought we played hard and competed. A little credit – they were making shots and we didn’t. But I loved our fight. I loved what I saw.”

Game 2 is on Tuesday night in Phoenix.

HAWKS UPEND SIXERS

(PHILADELPHIA) Trae Young ripped off his jersey and bounded up the steps to toss his dad the souvenir from the first Game 7 road victory in Hawks history.

Young’s going to need a new uniform.

He shook off a cold shooting night and improbably helped Atlanta become road warriors one more time, and now the Hawks are taking their stunning turnaround to the Eastern Conference finals.

“We did it in a big way,” Young said.

They busted the Process along the way.

Young made a late 3-pointer and scored 21 points to help Atlanta win for the third time in the series in Philadelphia, a 103-96 victory over the top-seeded 76ers on Sunday night in Game 7.

The Hawks will open their first East finals since 2015 against the Bucks on Wednesday night in Milwaukee.

“I felt like they were built for this moment tonight to win this game,” coach Nate McMillan said.

Atlanta had been 0-9 in Games 7s on the road.

NBA FINES EMBIID $35,000 FOR GAME 6 ALTERCATION

(PHILADELPHIA ) Philadelphia center Joel Embiid was fined by the NBA $35,000 for escalating an altercation in game six of the Eastern conference semifinals.

In the altercation, Embiid fell on John Collins of Atlanta, Collins then shoved Embiid before both came to their feet. Collins then attempted to fight off Embiid who had his hands around his neck.

NBA officials reviewed the altercation and called a technical foul on each player.

The NBA said Sunday Embiid failed to comply with an NBA security interview following the incident.

COLLEGE BASEBALL WORLD SERIES: VIRGINIA DEFEATS TENNESSEE

Thanks to six innings of five-hit, scoreless ball from starter Andrew Abbott and timely hitting from catcher Logan Michaels, who went 3-for-4 with two RBI and three runs, including a solo home run in the third as well as an insurance run in the ninth, Virginia defeated No. 3 seed Tennessee 6-0 on Day 2 of the College World Series.

After Michaels’ home run, which came on Father’s Day with his father in attendance, started the scoring, Virginia scored four runs in the seventh to break the game open. The top two batters in the Cavaliers’ lineup – third baseman Zack Gelof and second baseman Max Cotier – went a combined 5-for-9 with one run and two RBI.

COLLEGE WORLD SERIES: MISSISSIPPI STATE STRIKESOUT 21, SETS CWS RECORD IN WIN

Mississippi State held on 2-1 to defeat Texas in the final game of the 2021 College World Series opening weekend. MSU’s Will Bednar dazzled with 15 strikeouts in 6+ innings, in a game that saw the most combined strikeouts in CWS history (33).

Bednar allowed just one hit and walked one, while falling two strikeouts short of the CWS nine-inning record.

MSU got both of its runs in the fourth inning via a Scotty Dubrule sac fly and a Brad Cumbest RBI triple that just bent fair down the right field line.

Texas cut the deficit to one in the bottom of the ninth inning with a Mike Antico homer, and later put the tying and winning runs on base. But star closer Landon Sims stranded them there to secure the three-inning save.

RAHM WINS US OPEN

(SAN DIEGO)   Putting has changed Joe Rahm’s career. Rahm won the U.S. Open Sunday after nailing a 25-foot birdie put on the 17th hole and then made another incredible shot on the final hole from 18 feet away. Rahm became the first Spaniard to win the U.S. Open.

Rahm becomes the second player this year to capture his first major, joining with Hideki Matsuyama at the Masters.

“I’m a big believer in karma, and after what happened a couple weeks ago, I stayed really positive knowing good things were coming,” Rahm said. “I didn’t know what it was going to be, but I knew we were coming to a special place.

“I just felt like the stars were aligning, and I knew my best golf was to come.”

CINCINNATI LOSES TO PADRES

(San Diego) Wil Myers had a two run triple and later scored on Cincinnati first baseman Joey Votto’s throwing error and the Padres went on to complete a four – game sweep with a 3 – to win Sunday afternoon. It was San Diego’s first – ever four – game sweep of the Reds.

Right – hander Dinelson Lamet held the Reds to just four heads in five scoreless innings and struck at a season-high seven.

Mark Melancon pitched the ninth for his 21st save, tops in the big leagues.

UP NEXT

Reds: RHP Tyler Mahle (7-2, 3.39) is scheduled to start Monday night in the opener of a two-game series at Minnesota, which will counter with LHIP J.A. Happ (3-3, 6.12).

Padres: RHP Yu Darvish (6-2, 2.57) is scheduled to start Monday night in the opener of a three-game home series against the rival Los Angeles Dodgers, who will counter with LHP Julio Urias (9-2, 3.54).

MILLS, BULLPEN HELP CUBS BLANK MARLINS

(Chicago)  Alec Mills and three relievers combined on a shutout as the Cubs beat Miami 2 – 0 to avoid a sweep in the series.

“A lot of us starters have similar repertoires, but I think we’re all different in our own kind of way,” Mills said. “We kind of attacked maybe a little bit differently the first two days. I kind of changed it up, maybe worked a little bit more toward the inner half of the plate, especially against the righties.”

The Cubs had been outscored 21 – 3 in the previous two days at Wrigley Field.

Mills worked around six hits over five innings. The right-hander struck out three without a walk.

The bullpen shut down Miami the rest of the way, with Ryan Tepera throwing two innings and Andrew Chafin working the eighth before Craig Kimbrel came on in the ninth for his 20th save in 22 chances. Kimbrel also tied Jonathan Papelbon for ninth on baseball’s all-time saves list with 368.

It was just what the Cubs needed after getting knocked around for 10 or more runs in back-to-back home games for the first time since August 2015 against Detroit.

SCHWARBER HITS 3 HOMERUNS, WASHINGTON DEFEATS METS 5 – 2

(WASHINGTON)  Kyle Schwarber hammered three homeruns and tied a major league record with five dingers in a two – game span leading the Nationals to a 5 – 2 win over the Mets on Sunday, taking 3 of 4 in the series.

Schwarber now has 18 homeruns this season with his first career three – homer game.

“To be honest with you, I don’t know what’s going on,” Schwarber said.

Schwarber had the sixth three-homer game since the franchise moved to Washington for the 2005 season, the first since Anthony Rendon’s 10-RBI game against the Mets on April 30, 2017.

“I’m a big believer that hitting is a feeling. Don’t get me wrong, there’s mechanical, there’s approach, things like that,” Schwarber said. “But when you step in the box and everything feels right, you already have a big advantage.”

New York scored just nine runs in the four-game series. Despite going 2 for 14 with runners in scoring position, Washington closed within five games of the NL East-leading Mets.

“It’s really clicking,” Nationals manager Dave Martinez said. “Every guy is doing their part.”

KEUCHEL HIT EARLY AS ASTROS BEAT THE WHITE SOX 8 – 2.

(HOUSTON)

Current White Sox pitcher and former Astros All-Star Dallas Keuchel lost in his first appearance against the Astros, and Abraham Toro had a career – high four hits. As Houston defeated the White Sox 8 – 2, for their seventh straight win.

Keuchel help Houston win its first World Series championship back in 2017, but allowed a season-high six runs in a season – low 2 2/3 innings.

“Not a lot of good, a lot of bad,” Keuchel said of the four-game series. “It’s just one of those four-game series where you face a good team that’s hot, and you’re not really doing anything good on your end, so it was a good old-fashioned butt-whooping.”

He gave up seven hits and four walks, leaving after throwing 41 pitches in the third.

“It was weird,” Keuchel said of returning to Houston. “I had every emotion under the sun going there. I wasn’t making terrible pitches, but at the same time, I wasn’t giving myself any room to breathe. . I just couldn’t really stop the bleeding there in the third, and I wasn’t around the zone as much as I would have liked to from the previous couple outings.”

ARIZONA LOSES 17TH STRAIGHT CONTEST

(PHOENIX)  Albert Pujols smacked day three – run homerun helping the Dodgers defeat Arizona and extending the Diamondbacks’ losing streak to 17 games.

Pujols past Mel Ott for 14th on the all-time career runs list.

Arizona is quickly approaching the longest losing streak of baseballs wild-card era. Kansas City in 2005 set the record in July and August of that season.

Pujols’ 673rd home run put Los Angeles ahead 4-0 against Alex Young (2-5) and raised his total to 1,860 runs, one more than Ott from 1926-47 for the New York Giants. Next up is Tris Speaker with 1,882.

The 41-year-old Pujols has 11 home runs this season and trails only Barry Bonds (762), Hank Aaron (755), Babe Ruth (714) and Alex Rodriguez (696) on the career list.

INDYCAR: PALOU WINS ROAD AMERICA THRILLER, TAKES POINTS LEAD

(INDYCAR PRESS RELEASE)

FINAL RESULTS: http://www.imscdn.com/indycar_media/documents/2021-06-20/indycar-officialraceresults.pdf

In yet another nerve-fraying finish, Alex Palou passed Josef Newgarden with two laps remaining Sunday to win the REV Group Grand Prix presented by AMR at Road America and regained the NTT INDYCAR SERIES championship lead.

Palou drove his No. 10 NTT DATA Honda to a 1.9106-second victory over the No. 26 Gainbridge Honda of Colton Herta. 2014 series champion Will Power finished third in the No. 12 Verizon 5G Team Penske Chevrolet. Palou, who led five of the 55 laps after starting fifth, averaged 119.424 mph in a race slowed by four full-course caution periods.

“It always feels awesome even if it’s your lucky day or just because you have really good pace,” Palou said. “We’ve been close. Indy road course, Detroit, Indy 500, and today I was like, ‘Oh, no, we need to get that win.’ A win is a win. It’s always the best thing.”

Palou took a 28-point lead over Pato O’Ward in the series standings with his second victory of the season, as he also won the season opener on April 18 at Barber Motorsports Park. O’Ward, who led Palou by one point as the series leader entering this race, finished ninth in the No. 5 Arrow McLaren SP Chevrolet.

Spanish driver Palou became the first Chip Ganassi Racing driver other than six-time series champion Scott Dixon to earn at least two victories in a season since Dario Franchitti in 2011. Palou also kept Chip Ganassi Racing spotless at Road America over the last two seasons, as Dixon and Felix Rosenqvist swept the doubleheader here last summer for the team.

While Power returned to the podium for the first time since finishing second in the season opener at Barber, this was the second straight heartbreaking result for his Team Penske teammate Newgarden.

NTT P1 Award winner Newgarden led a race-high 32 laps in the No. 2 Hitachi Team Penske Chevrolet and looked to be poised for his and Team Penske’s first victory of the season on a restart at the end of Lap 53. But Newgarden’s car suffered a mechanical problem when the green flag flew, and Palou blew past him on the outside before Turn 1 on Lap 54 for a lead he wouldn’t surrender.

Meanwhile, Newgarden limped the final two trips around the 14-turn, 4.014-mile circuit with his compromised car and ended up a disappointing 21st as the last car on the lead lap.

It was the second straight Sunday of despair for Newgarden, who was passed by O’Ward for the lead with three laps remaining in Race 2 of the Chevrolet Dual at Detroit and ended up finishing second at Belle Isle after leading 67 of 70 laps.

“Down the front straightaway, as soon as I got to fifth gear, I tried to shift to sixth, and it didn’t take the selection, so I was stuck in fifth,” Newgarden said. “I was trying to get it up to sixth gear, and it wouldn’t go. Then I got stuck in fifth in Turn 1. I finally got it to go down, and I just could not get it to upshift after that. I got it to first, essentially, and tried to stay out of the way.

“I’m not sure what happened. Disappointing for all of us. I knew we had a great car all day.”

Team Penske also lost a possible victory in Race 1 last Saturday at Detroit when Power’s leading car wouldn’t refire on pit road after a red flag period late in the race.

“I don’t know what the luck (is) with our team right now, but with Josef to have a gearbox issue on the last bloody lap, almost the race won, like we were in Detroit, it’s just heartbreaking,” Power said. “I couldn’t believe it when he was pulling off to the side.”

Tire wear was a hot topic through practice and qualifying Friday and Saturday, so pole sitter Newgarden and the other top seven drivers on the starting grid elected to begin the race with grippier but less durable Firestone alternate “red” tires and switch to the more durable Firestone primary “black” tires during their final two stops.

Newgarden was hurt by his tire choice at the end of Race 2 last Sunday, as he was on worn-out alternate tires at the end of the race and was a sitting duck for O’Ward and his primary tires in the last three laps. That mistake wasn’t repeated today, and it was the right call.

Two-time series champion Newgarden, Palou, Herta and Power all were on the strategy of starting with alternate tires and switching to primaries after their first pit stop, biding their time for a final race for the checkered at the end after other drivers on different strategies cycled through their final stops.

Newgarden was running second, about seventh-tenths of a second ahead of third-place Palou, when leader Oliver Askew – on a different fuel strategy – pitted from the lead in the No. 21 Direct Supply Chevrolet on Lap 51.

But Newgarden’s gap to Palou was erased on the same lap when Ed Jones spun in Canada Corner after the rear suspension broke on his No. 18 SealMaster Honda. That triggered the last full-course caution, setting up the final restart duel between Newgarden and Palou that never materialized due to Newgarden’s technical problem.

There were seven different leaders and 11 lead changes, mainly due to daring fuel strategies from teams lacking the pace of the frontrunners. But the dramatic finish was the culmination of a no-holds-barred race that featured ferocious battles for position throughout the field, with cars hip-checking each other and kicking up plumes of dirt off course during the duels.

The next event is the Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio on Sunday, July 4 at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course near Columbus, Ohio. Live coverage starts at noon (ET) on NBC and the INDYCAR Radio Network.

NASCAR: Kyle Larson pours it on, wins Cup Series’ first race at Nashville Superspeedway

(NASCAR Wire Service)

FINAL RESULTS: https://www.nascar.com/results/racecenter/2021/nascar-cup-series/ally-400/stn/recap/

Kyle Larson continued his streak of superiority Sunday afternoon, winning the Ally 400 at Nashville Superspeedway — his third consecutive win, following three consecutive runner-up finishes. He hasn’t finished worse than second place in a NASCAR Cup Series race since May 2.

It’s a high performance mark the series hasn’t seen in more than a decade when former Hendrick Motorsports driver Jimmie Johnson won four straight points-paying races in 2007. Larson’s win Sunday was his third straight points-paying victory, but he also won the All-Star Race $1 million-to-win exhibition last week at Texas Motor Speedway.

Larson’s No. 5 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet led Ross Chastain and Chip Ganassi Racing’s No. 42 Chevrolet across the Nashville finish line by 4.335 seconds. He paced the field by as much as five seconds in the closing 10 laps of this inaugural event. And that fourth winner’s trophy is a series best on the season.

There were 14 lead changes among seven drivers, but only two other drivers led double-digit laps — Chase Elliott (13) and Kyle Busch (10).

“It was a great day,” Larson said, smiling at the understatement. “We never really had to run behind people, so I don’t know if one of my teammates got out front again, it probably would have been hard to pass them.

“This Valvoline Chevrolet was really good. It cut the middle of the corner really well and our pit crew did an awesome job again. I just hope we can keep it going.”

Larson led 264 of the 300 laps at the 1.333-mile Nashville track in the first NASCAR Cup Series race in the city since 1984. The effort marked the fourth time this season Larson has led at least 200 laps in a race and the fifth time he has led more than half the total laps in a race.

Only 17 races into the 36-race season, Larson has already eclipsed his previous season-best laps led. He has been out front 1,426 laps. His previous season-best total was 1,352 laps led in 2017.

Larson, who now has 10 career NASCAR Cup Series wins, has led 82 percent of all laps run during this current three-race winning streak. His Hendrick teammate Elliott — who finished 13th — won Stage 1. Larson answered with the Stage 2 victory — his 12th of the season, which is double that of any other driver.

Larson’s Hendrick Motorsports teammate, William Byron, looked to give the team its fifth straight 1-2 finish, rallying from the rear of the grid. He was running second until the final 10 laps when Chastain got around him. Byron finished third, followed by polesitter Aric Almirola and his Stewart-Haas Racing teammate, Kevin Harvick.

The fourth-place finish was Almirola’s best of the season. Harvick’s fifth-place run was his best in the last six races.

“We had a good car, just, my goodness, we don’t have anything for those Chevrolets right now,” said Almirola, who drives the No. 10 SHR Ford. “They’re making grip and they’re getting up off the corner. It’s so hard to race with them.

“But we have made huge strides to close the gap. Our race team is doing a great job scrounging and scrapping to build better race cars and it’s nice to come here and run up front, run in the top five and at least be in the mix.”

Ricky Stenhouse Jr., Daniel Suarez, Kurt Busch, Christopher Bell and Joey Logano rounded out the top 10. It marked Stenhouse’s second top 10 of the season and the third for Suarez in the new No. 99 Trackhouse Racing team, which hosted co-owner, superstar performer Pitbull at Nashville.

NASCAR Cup Series championship leader Denny Hamlin had to pit for fuel with two laps remaining dropping from a top-10 result. He finished 22nd — the second time he has finished outside the top 10 in the last six races and now holds a slim nine-point championship lead over Larson.

The NASCAR Cup Series moves to Pocono Raceway for a doubleheader weekend. Race 1 will be Saturday (3 p.m. ET, NBCSN, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio). The Explore the Pocono Mountains 350 (Sunday, 3:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio) completes the weekend.

INDIANAPOLIS INDIANS: Father’s Day Frenzy: Indians Walk Off in 11

(INDIANS RELEASE)

INDIANAPOLIS – With home plate unguarded following a game-tying single off the bat of Christian Bethancourt, Wilmer Difo raced in to score the walk-off Indians run in the 11th inning on Sunday afternoon. The 8-7 win was Indy’s second walk-off over the Memphis Redbirds and capped a 5-1 series victory in the six-game set.

Facing a 7-6 deficit with two outs in the bottom of the 11th, Difo walked to extend the inning to Bethancourt. He shot a line drive into center field to score Anthony Alford, the automatic runner on second base, to tie the game at 7-7. On the play, the throw home allowed Difo to advance to third, which took Redbirds catcher Tyler Heineman off the plate. With first base uncovered, Bethancourt stalled between first and second to bring pitcher Tyler Webb ­– who was covering home – toward first base. Difo then broke toward the plate, narrowly missing a tag at third base, to score the winning run.

Memphis (16-26) took an early 3-0 lead in the second inning thanks to a three-run triple off the bat of starting pitcher Zack Thompson. Two walks and a single loaded the bases before, with two outs, Thompson shot a line drive over the head of Alford to support his own cause. The Redbirds then extended their lead to 5-0 in the fourth inning off a two-run single by Kramer Robertson.

Facing a 6-1 deficit after a two-out double by Joe Hudson put Indy on the board in the fourth and an error by Will Craig plated another Redbirds run in the seventh, the Indians inched their way closer to a tie game. Alford, who walked in his first three plate appearances, singled up the middle to score Joe Hudson and make the score 6-2.

The Indians (23-18) tied the game in the eighth with a four-run frame, led off by a one-out double off the bat of Difo. Bethancourt then entered the game as a pinch hitter and launched the first pitch he saw over the left-field wall to cut the Redbirds lead to 6-4. Bligh Madris drove in another run on a ground out, and Alford tied the game with a single up the middle.

Memphis scored its automatic runner from third base on a one-out single by Justin Williams off Shea Spitzbarth (W, 3-1) to take the short-lived lead in the 11th inning. Tyler Webb (L, 0-1) took the mound for the Redbirds in the bottom of the inning.

Alford reached base safely in all six of his plate appearances with four walks and a pair of singles. Hudson led the offense in hits, going 3-for-5 with two doubles, an RBI and two runs scored.

The comeback victory was the Indians second come-from-behind win of five runs so far this season. The first came on Sunday, May 16 when Bethancourt singled home the walk-off run in the ninth inning after facing a 5-0 deficit in the first inning.

Indianapolis travels to Louisville for their upcoming six-game series. First pitch at Louisville Slugger Field is scheduled for 7:00 PM ET, and both teams have yet to name starting pitchers.

TODAY IN BASEBALL HISTORY

1900       Citing the Superbas’ poor attendance at Brooklyn’s Washington Park, National League president Ned Young discusses the possibility of transferring the franchise to the District of Columbia. The reigning NL champions, en route to their second consecutive title, are averaging only a thousand fans on non-holiday dates.

1916       Red Sox right-hander Rube Foster tosses a 2-0 no-hitter against the Highlanders. The no-no is the first one ever thrown in Fenway Park, the team’s home since 1912.

1941       In New York’s 7-2 loss to the Tigers at Yankee Stadium, Phil Rizzuto’s seventh-inning round-tripper extends the team’s consecutive-game home run streak to 17. The historic homer, which ties the major league reestablished by Detroit, is only the light-hitting shortstop’s second career home run.

1941       Lefty Grove’s Fenway consecutive win streak, which started on May 3, 1938, ends at 20 games with a 13-9 loss to the St. Louis Browns. The future Hall of Fame southpaw, facing just 13 batters, allows six runs, yielding five hits and walking 3 in 1.2 innings of work.

1947       Jack Chesbro’s induction into the Hall of Fame makes him the only player to be enshrined in Cooperstown who played professional baseball for a team located in the upstate New York village on the shores of Otsego Lake. The right-hander, who established the modern-era record (pre-1901) for most victories in a season with 41 while pitching for the 1904 Highlanders, played for the Cooperstown Athletics after the Roanoke Magicians of the Virginia State League disbanded during 1896 season.

1951       Donald L. Barnes, at the request of Browns’ owners William and Charles Dewitt, announces the sale of the controlling interest of the club to Bill Veeck, former owner of the Indians. The arrangement of the transaction ensures the new owner will keep the team in St. Louis, debunking the rumors of the shift of the franchise to Milwaukee.

1952       National Association of Professional Baseball Leagues president George Trautman bans the signing of women, preventing 24 year-old softball shortstop standout Eleanor Engle from playing with the Harrisburg Senators. Commissioner Ford Frick will go one step further by formally prohibiting females from professional baseball, using the ruling to prevent teams from using women players as a publicity stunt.

1956       Orioles hurlers Connie Johnson and George Zuverink combine to one-hit the White Sox at Comiskey Park. Unfortunately, the one hit is a run-scoring double in the first frame of the team’s 1-0 loss to Chicago’s southpaw Jack Harshman, who also tosses a one-hitter gem in the two-hour and 12-minute contest.

1957       In his first major league start, Von McDaniel, a recent graduate of Oklahoma’s Hollis High School, two-hits the Dodgers at Busch Stadium, 2-0. The 18 year-old bonus baby holds Brooklyn hitless until Jim Gilliam’s soft line drive to second spins out Don Blasingame’s glove, and Hal Smith’s failure to handle Duke Snider’s sacrifice gives the visitors two tainted infield safeties in the sixth inning. (Ed. Note: Our thanks to frequent contributor John F., who attended this game as a youngster with his Dad, for sharing his memories of the game. -LP)

1957       Going the distance in the Senators’ 6-3 victory over Cleveland, Chuck Stobbs wins his first game since throwing a shutout against Baltimore last September. The 27 year-old right-hander snaps a personal 16-game losing streak, which includes dropping his first 11 decisions this year.

1959       Stan Musial, in the Cardinals’ 5-1 victory over the Bucs at Busch Stadium, collects a pair of two-baggers, the first which breaks Honus Wagner’s National League record of 651 career doubles. The southpaw-swinging Stan the Man moves to third on the all-time major league list for two-base hits, trailing only American Leaguers Tris Speaker (793) and Ty Cobb (724). Ed. Note: Speaker (one less) and Wagner’s (eight less) totals were historically adjusted since Musial accomplished the feat. -LP

1960       Richie Ashburn plays his first game in Philadelphia since being traded to the Cubs in the offseason. ‘Whitey,’ a fan favorite during his dozen years with the Phillies, strikes out looking to start his 1-for-6 day in an extra-inning loss at Shibe Park.

1964       Despite the four errors made by the Phillies, Rick Wise wins the first of his 188 major league victories when Philadelphia beats the Mets at Shea Stadium in the nightcap of a twin bill, 8-2. The 18 year-old rookie right-hander’s accomplishment receives little fanfare when his effort follows Jim Bunning’s perfect game in the opener.

1964       On an unseasonably warm Father’s Day, Phillies’ hurler Jim Bunning becomes the first modern pitcher to toss a no-hitter in both leagues when he throws a perfect game to beat the Mets, 6-0. Gus Triandos also becomes the first catcher to handle a no-hitter in both leagues.

1967       In retaliation for Joe Foy getting struck in the helmet in the top of the frame, Red Sox starter Jim Lonborg promptly plunks opposing pitcher Thad Tillotson in the back, igniting a bench-clearing brawl in the second inning of the Yankees’ 8-1 loss to Boston at the Stadium. The five-minute melee results in no ejections but doesn’t quite settle the matter when Reggie Smith is brushed back in the third, and Dick Howser leaves the game in the fifth after being hit the head with a pitch.

1970       At Cleveland Stadium, Cesar Gutierrez goes 7-for-7, including six singles and a double, in the Detroit’s 9-8 victory over the Indians in 12 innings. The 27 year-old Venezuelan shortstop will finish his brief four-year major league career with a .235 lifetime batting average.

1978       On the first pitch in his first at-bat, Dave Machemer hits his only major league home run. The rookie second baseman, batting leadoff for the visiting Angels, starts the Halos’ eventual 5-2 victory over Minnesota with a long fly over the left-field wall at Metropolitan Stadium.

1986       Bo Jackson, who had been drafted by the Royals in the fourth round, 105th overall, in the 1986 amateur draft, signs a three-year contract worth just over $1 million to play baseball with the Royals, the defending World Series champions. The Auburn Tiger running back, the recipient of 1985 Heisman Trophy, will also play in the NFL with the LA Raiders.

1987       On Fathers’Day, for the second consecutive game, a bench-clearing brawl occurs between the Reds and Braves in Atlanta as the result of a batter hit by a pitch. Tracy Jones, struck by a ball thrown by Jim Acker, ignites the fight when he belatedly charges the toward the mound when the reliever comes within 25 feet of home plate.

1988       At Tiger Stadium, Detroit scores six times in the bottom of the ninth inning to beat a stunned Yankees team, 7-6. Allen Trammell ends the game dramatically, hitting a two-out walk-off grand slam off Cecilio Guante.

1989       Carlton Fisk surpasses Yogi Berra as the American League leader for career home runs by a catcher. The White Sox backstop’s 307th home run helps to beat the Yankees, 7-3.

1998       On Father’s Day, the New York Times publishes Michael Bouton’s open letter to the Yankees, asking the franchise to reconsider its long-time snub of his dad, Jim, the team’s former 21-game winner and controversial author of Ball Four. Thanks to his son’s efforts, Jim Bouton’s banishment from Yankee Stadium will end next month when the right-hander receives an invitation to return to the Bronx ballpark for the first time in nearly thirty years to participate in the team’s Old-Timers’ Day.

1998       Bill Russell is released as Dodger manager and is replaced in the dugout by Glenn Hoffmann. In the front office, Tommy Lasorda assumes the general manager duties of the third-place club from Fred Claire.

1999       Blue Jay Tony Fernandez becomes the Dominican-born career hits leader with his 2,178th hit to move ahead of Julio Franco. The shortstop’s hit plated the winning run with two outs in the ninth in Toronto’s 2-1 victory over Kansas City.

2000       Eric Chavez becomes the 13th A’s player in the 100-year history of the franchise to hit for the cycle when he doubles (2nd), singles (4th), and triples (5th) off Mike Mussina, and completes the cycle with a home run (7th) off Jose Mercedes in the team’s 10-3 win over Baltimore. Oakland’s 22 year-old third baseman is the seventh-youngest major leaguer to accomplish the feat.

2001       Returning to the major leagues after a stint with the Newark Bears of the independent Atlantic League, Jose Canseco starts as the designated hitter for the White Sox. The former All-Star, who has 446 career home runs (23rd all-time), didn’t get any offers after being released by the Angels in the spring.

2002       During the New York-Penn League game between the New Jersey Cardinals and the Staten Island Yankees, a fan hops a fence and goes onto the field to argue an umpire’s call at first base. The 38 year-old woman, who will face disorderly person charges, is at the game with her eight year-old daughter’s Brownie troop.

2002       Luis Castillo hits safely in his 35th consecutive game, tying Fred Clarke (1895), Ty Cobb (1917), and George Sisler (1924-25) for the tenth longest streak in major league history. The Marlins’ infielder’s third-inning infield hit off knuckleballer Steve Sparks’ glove also surpasses 1987 Benito Santiago’s for the longest streak established by a Latin player.

2003       Tied 2-2 after nine innings at Philadelphia’s Veterans Stadium, the Red Sox and Phillies exchange runs in the twelfth, and then when Boston tallies twice in the thirteenth, the hometown team scores three times in the bottom of the frame to win the interleague contest, 6-5. Boston shortstop Nomar Garciaparra goes 6-for-6 for the day, all singles.

2005       General manager Dan O’Brien meets face to face with Reds skipper Dave Miley (125-164) to inform the third-year manager of his decision to fire him. Former Ranger manager Jerry Narron becomes the 58th manager in Reds history.

2005       After building a 10-2 lead at Yankee Stadium, the Devil Rays lose to the Bronx Bombers 20-11, making it the second time in franchise history the team is ahead by eight or more runs and loses by nine or more tallies. No other club in baseball history has ever achieved this dubious distinction, as the D-Rays with their 1999 defeat to the Indians now have accomplished the feat twice.

2005       Giving up 13 runs in the bottom of the second inning, the Devil Rays become the first team in history to yield that many tallies in one inning twice during the same season. New York was the benefactor each time, as the visiting Tampa Bay hurlers also had a 13-run meltdown in April at Yankee Stadium.

2006       Jose Reyes becomes the ninth player in Mets history to hit for the cycle. The 23 year-old shortstop hits a leadoff homer in the first, followed by a double in the third, then a triple in the fifth, and completes the feat with an eighth-inning single in the team’s 5-4 loss to the Reds at Shea Stadium.

2009       Tony La Russa gets his 2,500th victory as a manager when the Cardinals defeat Kansas City at Kauffman Stadium, 12-5. Joining Connie Mack and John McGraw, the Redbird skipper, who also piloted the White Sox and A’s, becomes only the third major league manager to reach the milestone.

2015       Melissa Mayeux becomes the first female to be placed on the Major League Baseball’s international registration list, making her eligible to be signed by pro teams on July 2. The 16 year-old shortstop of the French U-18 junior national team campaigned successfully to abolish the country’s “no-girls-allowed” rule, so she could keep competing with the boys.

2016       Dean Kremer becomes the first-ever Israeli to sign a contract with a Major League baseball team when he comes to terms with the Dodgers after being selected in the annual amateur draft earlier this month. The 20 year-old right-hander, who won Europe’s Most Valuable Pitcher award in both 2014 and 2015, has hurled for Israel’s national baseball team for the past three seasons.

2016       Astro backstop Erik Kratz, who tossed an ineffective inning in an 11-1 rout by the Angels in April, becomes the first modern player to catch and pitch for two teams in the same season, throwing a scoreless ninth inning in relief in the Pirates’ 15-4 loss to the Giants at PNC Park. The 36 year-old journeyman backstop, obtained earlier in the month from the Halos, allows two hits, striking out Brandon Belt for the first out of the frame.

2019       On his first trip to Busch Stadium, Albert Pujols receives a warm welcome from the Cardinals fans, receiving standing ovations during warm-ups, a scoreboard tribute, and his first three at-bats, before a getting curtain call upon leaving the game. During his 11-year tenure with the Redbirds before becoming a free agent seven seasons ago, the Angel first baseman won three MVPs, a Rookie of the Year award, six Silver Sluggers, two Gold Gloves, two World Series rings, and the 2004 NLCS MVP.
