FROM THE BASEBALL CHRONOLOGY
»May 4, 1989: Toronto's Junior Felix hits the first pitch he sees in the big leagues for a home run off Kirk McCaskill, but the Blue Jays lose 3–2 in 10 innings. He is the 27th American League player ever to homer in his first ML at bat, and the 10th to do so on the first pitch.
»June 4, 1989: Don't leave early. Toronto beats Boston 13–11 in 12 innings after trailing 10–0 after 6. Red Sox starter Mike Smithson throws six scoreless innings before leaving in the 7th because of a foot blister. The Jays then score two in the 7th, four in the 8th and five in the 9th, and two more in the 11th on Junior Felix's home run. It is the biggest lead the Red Sox have ever blown and their 12th consecutive loss to the Blue Jays at Fenway.
