This day in history-- Raul Mondesi

Postby BXBombers » Tue May 04, 2004 1:15 am

My man Raul had a good day:

2001 -- Raul Mondesi of the Blue Jays, went 4-for-4, with two homers, two doubles, and six RBIs, leading Toronto to an 8-3 victory over Seattle.

This year so far his stats put him at about the level of my catcher, J.Kendall, solid across the board but not outstanding. Not so much for Raul, anyway, who isn't a catcher.

Here are some other guys that had good days, courtesy of Ya-shmoo:


May 4


1910 -- The Browns and Cardinals played home games in St. Louis, and President Taft, not wanting to offend either club, saw parts of each game at Robinson Field and Sportsman's Park.

1969 -- The Houston Astros set an NL record by turning seven double plays against the San Francisco Giants. First baseman Curt Blefry participated in all seven.

1975 -- Bob Watson of the Houston Astros, sensing baseball history, raced around the bases on Milt May's home run and crossed the plate at Candlestick Park in time to score major league baseball's 1 millionth run, seconds ahead of Dave Concepcion of Cincinnati.

1981 -- New York's Ron Davis struck out eight consecutive Angels in relief as the Yankees defeated California 4-2.

1989 -- Toronto's Junior Felix became the 53rd player in major league history to hit a home run in his first at-bat with a third-inning drive off California's Kirk McCaskill as the Blue Jays lost 3-2 in 10 innings.

1991 -- Chris James drove in nine runs with two homers and two singles, breaking Cleveland's club record for RBIs in a game and leading the Indians to a 20-6 victory over the Oakland Athletics.

1996 -- The Texas Rangers became the first American League team in 79 years to pitch consecutive one-hitters. Roger Pavlik held Detroit to a fifth-inning home run in a 3-1 win; Ken Hill one-hit Detroit on May 3, retiring the last 26 batters he faced.

2001 -- Raul Mondesi of the Blue Jays, went 4-for-4, with two homers, two doubles, and six RBIs, leading Toronto to an 8-3 victory over Seattle.

Today's birthdays: Eddie Perez, 36; Joe Borowski, 33; Miguel Cairo, 30; BenGrieve, 28; Jason Michaels, 28.
