- 2009 — Marcus Thames hits a pair of two-run home runs as the Tigers beat the Brewers 10 – 4 in a rain-shortened game that ends with one out in the bottom of the seventh, after being delayed for more than two hours in the fourth. Zach Miner picks up the win in relief in the wild game in which video replay reviews deprive Dusty Ryan of an apparent home run in the first but grant one to Miguel Cabrera two innings later.
- 2002 — The Tigers acquired OF George Lombard from the Braves for RHP Kris Keller.
- 1994 — The Tigers hit at least one home run in their 25th consecutive game when Mickey Tettleton goes deep against the Blue Jays.
- 1963 — Gates Brown becomes the 11th player in American League history to hit a home run in his first at-bat in a 9-2 loss to the Red Sox at Fenway Park.
