It Happened Today in:

1957: Rookie Jack Sanford struck out 9 Dodgers in a 3-2 victory, setting a season record for strikeouts by a rookie with 187.
1961: Sandy Koufax fans 7 Phils to set a NL record of 269 in a season, but the Phillies win 2-1 on a 2-run double by Tony Taylor.
1964: Johnny Callison hit homers in 3 consecutive at-bats. The Phils lost to Milwaukee anyway, 14-8 at Connie Mack and drop out of first place
