Runs allowed by reliever Edward Mujica in a combined 24 appearances and 382/3 innings at double-A Akron and triple-A Buffalo before he was promoted to the Cleveland Indians. He had 18 strikeouts and three walks at Buffalo.

Times Greg Morrison of the Edmonton Cracker Cats was hit by a pitch in six games against the Calgary Vipers. When someone threw a ball out of the dugout at Edmonton's Reggie Rivard, the benches cleared and a wild brawl followed.

Wins in the Seattle Mariners' first eight interleague games against the NL West. The Mariners swept San Diego and San Francisco and took the first two against the Los Angeles Dodgers before losing the series finale.

13

Runs allowed by Jason Marquis of the St. Louis Cardinals, as manager Tony La Russa left him on the mound to rot. St. Louis had used five relievers the night before, so Marquis and his ERA took one for the team.

Seasons since two teams accounted for at least 15 runs all via the home run. The Tigers and Cubs did a week ago today, the first since the Tigers beat the visiting Yankees, 10-9 in 1950 when all 19 runs were driven in by homers.
