FROM THE BASEBALL CHRONOLOGY
»September 3, 2002: Three Rangers pitchers combine to 1–hit the Orioles, winning by a score of 7–1. Starter Aaron Myette was ejected after throwing two pitches and replaced by Todd Van Poppel who threw two hitless innings. Van Poppel was in turn replaced by rookie Joaquin Benoit who did not give up a hit until Jerry Hairston's leadoff triple in the 9th. Benoit got credit for a 7–inning save, the longest since saves were first recorded in 1969.
