FROM THE BASEBALL CHRONOLOGY
»May 4, 1996: Roger Pavlik follows Ken Hill's one-hitter with one of his own, the first time in 79 years teammates have tossed back-to-back one-hitters in the American League, as Texas tops the Tigers, 3–1. Mark Lewis's 2-out homer in the 5th inning is the only Bengal safety. Neither Pavlik or Hill allows a walk.
»April 18, 1997:
Walks'll kill you. The Rangers Roger Pavlik sets a AL record by walking the first four batters he faces in a 6–5 loss to the Blue Jays, Pavlik will go on the DL on May seven and will stay there for 118 days.
»May 25, 2001: More one-hitters. At Wrigley, the Cubs edge the Brewers, 1-0, on Kerry Wood's one-hitter. Mark Loretta's single in the 7th is the only Milwaukee hit. Wood strikes out 14. The Cubs staff has now thrown back-to-back one hitters: it was last done by the Rangers, in 1996, when Ken Hill and Roger Pavlik did it.
