Tigers History Lesson
On this Date in Tigers History
- 1998 — The Tigers take the first game of a doubleheader against the Yankees by a 4-3 score in 17 innings. New York bounces back to take the nightcap by the identical score. The 26 innings take nearly nine hours to play.
- 1979 — The Tigers trade Rusty Staub, a spring holdout who got off to a slow start, to his former team Montreal for a minor-league player to be named later, catcher Randy Schafer.
- 1958 — Jim Bunning pitches a 3-0 no-hitter over the Red Sox, striking out a dozen. Only two walks and a hit batsman mar his performance as he wins his sixth game in seven decisions.
