Consecutive games of at least five innings pitched by the Padres' Mat Latos without allowing more than two runs; the streak, a modern-day first, was snapped when he gave up five runs in a 6--1 loss to the Giants on Sunday.
Positions played for the Double A West Tenn Diamond Jaxx by Leury Bonilla on Sept. 6, starting at centerfield and ending at pitcher, where he fanned a batter and allowed one hit in an 8--0 win.
Major league games last Saturday in which the lone runs came on solo homers, a historical first.
Grand slams hit by rookie Red Sox centerfielder Ryan Kalish since his July 31 MLB debut, his most recent coming against the Rays on Sept. 6. Only two other players (the Red Sox' Faye Throneberry in 1952 and Ellis Burks in '87) have hit slams in their first six weeks in the majors.
Straight seasons in which the Yankees' Nick Swisher has hit his 26th home run on Sept. 8, both walk-off dingers that beat the Rays (in 2009) and the Orioles ('10).
