1. While the New York Yankees pulled off a triple play earlier in the 2013 season, the Minnesota Twins hold the record of recording two triple-plays in a single game. This came against the Red Sox on July 17th, 1990. Unfortunately, despite the amazing feat, the Twins lost 1-0.
2. While Toronto Blue Jays’ Dave Stieb lost back-to-back no hitters in the ninth inning in consecutive starts in 1988, Cincinnati Reds starter, Johnny Vander Meer, was successful and currently holds the record for throwing back-to-back no-hitters on June 11th and June 15th, 1938 that has yet to be matched.
3. On May 1, 1920, the Brooklyn Dodgers and the Boston Braves played one of the longest games in MLB history. During the 26-inning game, Braves’ Charlie Pick went 0-for-11 at the plate, marking a record no one has yet surpassed (and many are probably thankful for that too!)
4. On April 23rd of this season, the Upton brothers were the second brothers to hit back-to-back home runs. But back-to-back home runs still belong in the record books as Seattle Mariners’ Mike Cameron and Bret Boone hit back-to-back home runs TWICE in the same inning on May 2, 2002.
5. On August 27, 1977 Texas Rangers’ Toby Harrah and Bump Wills became the first and only players to ever hit back-to-back inside-the-park home runs.
