FROM THE BASEBALL CHRONOLOGY
»August 9, 1999: The Blue Jays defeat the Rangers, 19-4, setting a team record by recording 25 hits. OF Jacob Brumfield and 2B Homer Bush get four hits apiece for Toronto while four other players record three safeties each. P Doug Davis enters the game in the 6th inning for Texas, making his major league debut. In two 1/3 innings of work, he allows 11 hits, including three home runs, while surrendering 10 earned runs. He'll return to the minors tomorrow.
»October 6, 2001: Little used P Dennis Stark and four relievers give Seattle a 10 win over Texas, handing the Rangers their only shutout of the year. Bret Boone's solo home run, off Doug Davis, is the scoring. The win is #116 for Seattle, tying the win mark of the 1906 Cubs. Texas will beat Seattle in tomorrow's season finale. Seattle ends the season having won the season series against all 18 opponents they faced: 13 AL teams and five NL. The last team to win every season series was the Tigers in 1968 against nine AL teams. The Mariners broke the record of the 1899 Brooklyn Dodgers (as noted by Walt Wilson), who won series against 11 NL teams.
»April 11, 2002:
Doug Davis (20) fires a 2hit complete game as Texas beats Mark Mulder and the A's, 70. Davis, an 11-game winner last season, had been criticized by pitching coach Oscar Acosta in spring training for not working hard enough. He will go 15 in his next eight starts and be demoted to (AAA) Oklahoma. Kevin Mench hits his first ML home run and drives in four runs, while Ivan Rodriguez and Rafael Palmiero each have three hits.
