Hero for An Inning - USA TODAY Sports

If it's not the hitting or the pitching then it's the defense. Losing to the Yankees always suck, but coming from behind to beat up one of the better setup men in the MLB and then throw it away on a colossal mental error/throwing error really hurts. The only good news is that it's April as there is still five more months of this to go which could also be a bad thing.

TODAY IN BASEBALL HISTORY

Baseball History April 21st - National Pastime - Baseball History
1966 The Phillies obtain Larry Jackson and Bob Buhl from the Cubs in exchange for future Hall of Fame hurler Ferguson Jenkins, outfielder Adolfo Phillips, and first baseman/outfielder John Herrnstein. The pair of right-handers will post a 47-53 record collectively for Philadelphia as Chicago's new moundsman will win twenty or more games for six consecutive seasons starting in 1967.

2000 In Cincinnati, the Dodger/Red game is delayed for 27 minutes due to the umpires' equipment being accidentally been shipped to New York. Replacement gear is secured from a downtown store but due to heavy traffic a police escort is needed to get the goods to Cinergy Field.
