In the first night game in major league history, the Phillies lose to the Reds 2-1 at Crosley Field
1952: Dodger Pee Wee Reese set an NL record when he drew a walk from Phillie Russ Meyer in the 5th inning, marking the ninth straight game in which Reese earned a base-on-balls.
1953: The Dodgers score 12 runs in the 8th innings to beat the Phils 16-2. All 12 runs scored before an out was made in that half inning, which took 42 minutes to complete.
2009: Mariano Rivera throws a scoreless 19th inning against the Phillies at Yankee Stadium. It's his last appearance against the Phillies; as he's the last player allowed to wear number 42, from this point on, no individual player wearing number 42 will play in a Phillies game.
