On this day in 1958, Hoyt Wilhelm no hit the Yankees in a 1-0 win. Beleaguered battery mate Gus Triandos hit a solo homer for the games only run. In 1998, Cal Ripken, Jr. ended his consecutive games played streak at 2,632. In 2002, Mike Bordick played his 102nd straight game at shortstop without committing an error, breaking the MLB record set by Rey Ordonez.

It's the birthday of Dave Gallagher.
