» June 3, 1995: Pitching against the Padres, Expos P Pedro Martinez (4–1) retires the first 27 batters, only to see the Pods Bip Roberts lead off the 10th inning with a double. Reliever Mel Rojas then retires the next three batters. San Diego starter Joey Hamilton is almost as good, giving up just three hits and no runs through nine innings. Reliever Brian Williams yields Jeff Treadway's RBI single in the top of the 10th. With the rules regarding no-hitters revised in 1991, Martinez receives credit for neither a perfect game nor a no-hitter. The win moves the Expos to within three games of the National League East-leading Phillies.

» April 29, 1999: Down 6–1, the Mariners score 11 runs in the 5th inning and six more in the 6th on the way to a 22–6 pasting of Detroit. Ken Griffey Jr. hits two home runs and drives in six in the inning. Tiger P Mel Rojas is pounded for eight hits and 11 earned runs in one and 2/3 innings of relief. It is the first time in 40 years that Detroit has given up 11 runs in a frame. By not committing an error in the contest, Mariner 1B David Segui becomes baseball's all–time leader in fielding percentage among first basemen (1,000 games minimum), moving slightly ahead of Steve Garvey.
