FROM THE BASEBALL CHRONOLOGY
»July 8, 2001: In Toronto's 9–3 win over Montreal, Jays' rookie Cesar Izturis hits his 1st ML homer inside the park, thanks to Expos LF Mark Smith losing the ball in the lights. He gets a glove on it, but Izturis beats the relay throw from Orlando Cabrera, who also hit his 1st homer inside-the-park. The win goes to 30-year-old rookie Chris Michalak (6-6), who will be waived next month and picked up by Texas.
