This Day in Baseball

1995: San Diego's Ken Caminiti became the first player in major league history to homer from both sides of the plate three times in a season as he went 4 for 4 with a career-high eight RBI in a 15-4 win over Colorado.

1997: Mark McGwire hit his 54th homer and became the first major leaguer to hit 20 or more homers for two teams in the same season.

2001: Albert Pujols set a National League rookie RBI record as St. Louis beat Milwaukee, 8-2. Pujols drove in three runs to give him 120 RBI, breaking the mark of 119 set by Wally Berger in 1930 for the Boston Braves.
