FROM THE BASEBALL CHRONOLOGY
»July 9, 1971:
Braves SS Leo Foster makes a memorable debut. Against the Pirates, he errs on his first chance, hits into a double play in the 5th, and a triple play in the 7th. Pittsburgh rolls by Atlanta, 11-2.
»April 14, 2002:
The Mariners top the Rangers, 9–7, as Ruben Sierra strokes five hits, including a double. Seattle rookie DH Ron Wright makes his ML debut in the game, going 0–for–3 and accounting for six outs on a strikeout, double play, and triple play. He becomes the 2nd player since 1950 to hit into a TP in his debut (Leo Foster did it for Atlanta in 1971) when Kenny Rogers fields his comebacker in the 4th. It is Wright's only appearance this year. Rogers allows a run in six innings, but the bullpen almost blows it for him. Alex Rodriguez has a pair of homers for Texas.
