Frank DiPino from the Chronology
Aug 9, 1988 - The Cubs and Mets play the first official night game at Wrigley Field a 6-4 Chicago victory. New York's Lenny Dykstra hits the first night home run supplanting Phil Bradley whose leadoff home run last night was washed out. Reliever Frank DiPino is the winner over Mets' starter Sid Fernandez.
Aug 11, 1986 - The Cubs parade a record 10 pitchers in a 17-inning 10-8 loss to the Pirates. Pittsburgh uses 7 hurlers. The game is a continuation of a contest started on April 20 but was postponed because of darkness. Barry Jones the winning pitcher who strikes out the side and Barry Bonds who hit the game winning RBI were in the minors when the game started. Loser Frank DiPino started the season with Houston.
Aug 30, 1982 - In an effort to bolster its pitching staff for the pennant race Milwaukee trades minor leaguers Kevin Bass Frank DiPino and Mike Madden to the Astros for veteran starter Don Sutton. Sutton has won 13 games for Houston this year. The Brewers are 4 1/2 games ahead of the Red Sox.
