Ted Cox from the Chronology
Apr 9, 1980 - Seattle's Ted Cox has the AL's first game-winning ribbie when he hits a 2-run double off Toronto's Dave Lemancyck in the 3rd inning as the M's take a 4-2. The Mariners win 8-6 the victory going to Mike Parrott who pitches 6 1/3 innings. Parrott will on the DL for 3 weeks in May after getting hit in the groin by a line drive. He will hobble to the end of the year with a 1-16 record and today's win will be his lone ML victory of 1980. For the second season in a row Toronto's John Mayberry opens with 4 hits including 2 home runs. The Blue Jays dropped their Opener last year as well.
Sep 18, 1977 - Spoiling Brooks Robinson Night in Baltimore Boston's Ted Cox goes 4-for-4 in his first ML game a 10-4 win over the Orioles. Cox will get 2 more hits tomorrow before making an out against the Yankees setting a ML record for straight hits at the start of a career.
