Manny Ramirez

Manny Ramirez hit his 500th home run on May 31, 2008, while playing for the Boston Red Sox against the Baltimore Orioles.

1914 — Joseph Benz of the White Sox pitched a no-hitter against the Cleveland Indians for a 6-1 victory.

1927 — Detroit first baseman Johnny Neun made an unassisted triple play against Cleveland. He caught Homer Summa's liner, tagged Charlie Jamieson between first and second and then touched second base before Glenn Myatt could return. The Tigers beat the Indians 1-0.

1937 — Carl Hubbell's 24-game winning streak ended with a 10-3 loss to the Brooklyn Dodgers. Hubbell's last defeat came on July 13, 1936, 1-0 to the Chicago Cubs.

1944 — Al Unser's only home run of the year, a pinch-hit grand slam with two outs in the bottom of the ninth, helped the Detroit Tigers beat the New York Yankees 6-2.

1964 — The New York Mets and the San Francisco Giants played the longest doubleheader in major league history — nine hours, 52 minutes — with the help of a 23-inning game in the nightcap that was won by the visiting Giants 8-6 on run-scoring hits by Del Crandall and Felipe Alou against Galen Cisco. The second game took 7:23 to play.

1980 — Ken Landreaux went 0-for-4 in Minnesota's 11-1 loss to Baltimore, ending his hitting streak at 31 consecutive games. It was the longest streak in the American League since Dom DiMaggio's 34-game streak in 1949.

1997 — Ila Borders became the first woman to pitch in a regular-season professional game, in the sixth inning of the St. Paul Saints' Northern League game against Sioux Falls. She gave up three earned runs without getting an out.

1999 — Umpire Frank Pulli used TV replay to take away a home run from Florida's Cliff Floyd in the fifth inning of the Marlins' 5-2 loss to St. Louis.

2008 — Manny Ramirez of the Boston Red Sox hit career homer No. 500, a drive off Baltimore right-hander Chad Bradford to become the 24th major leaguer to reach the milestone.

2009 — Stephen Cardullo set a tournament record with seven hits, including three of Florida State's NCAA-record 15 doubles, as the Seminoles routed Ohio State 37-6 advanced to the NCAA Super Regionals. Florida State set NCAA postseason records with 37 runs, 38 hits and 66 total bases, while Cardullo set the school mark for hits.

2014 — Boston's Brock Holt drove in two runs with one of his four doubles to lift the Red Sox to a 4-0 win over Tampa Bay, their seventh straight win. Boston's streak follows a 10-game skid, matching a major league record for consecutive wins after a double-digit losing stretch. The 1989 Detroit Tigers did it after losing 12 in a row, and the 1942 Pittsburgh Pirates also did it after dropping 10 straight games.
