Another Evening Game? Sunday June 2, 2013 Links

Who was the brilliant genius who scheduled three weekend night games on the West Coast? Dracula? It seems so as the sluggish Jays have played like they've had massive blood loss aka disrupted circadian cycles facing the weak Padres. Oh well.

Baseball History - June 2nd - National Pastime - Baseball History
1957 Moe Drabowsky sets a National League record for the most hit batsmen in a single game when he plunks four Reds in the Cubs' 4-3 loss at Crosley Field. Cincinnati's right fielder Frank Robinson is drilled in consecutive innings by the right-hander who was born in Ozanna, Poland.

1996 In St. Louis, Darryl Kile ties a major league record by hitting four batters. The Astros right-hander becomes the first National League player to do it since Moe Drabowsky accomplished the feat on the same date while toiling for the Cubs in 1957.

2000 The Montreal Expos will wear Maurice Richard's uniform number (9) on their right sleeves for the remainder of the year to pay tribute to the late Montreal Canadiens star, who played 18 seasons in the National Hockey League. It is the first time a major league team has chosen to honor a hero from a different sport.

2010 After retiring 26 consecutive Cleveland batters, Tigers’ starter Armando Galarraga appears to have hurled the season’s third perfect game when the throw from the first baseman to the pitcher, covering the bag, clearly beats the baserunner for the final out, but umpire Jim Joyce emphatically calls Jason Donald safe. After seeing the replay, the first base arbitrator tearfully admits his error and apologizes to the 28-year-old Venezuelan right-hander for his blown call.
