Cliff Melton becomes first rookie pitcher to strike out at least 10 batters in his MLB debut (he struck out 13), Fans watching the Dodgers at Ebbets Field and the Giants at the Polo Grounds are treated to the sight of the Hindenburg as the zeppelin flew over both stadiums. Hours later, the Zeppelin explodes on a landing strip in Lakehurst, New Jersey, killing all 36 people on board, In the Cincinnati Reds' 21-10 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies, Reds catcher Ernie Lombardi ties the modern Major League record with six hits in six consecutive times at bat. Pitcher Peaches Davis gives up ten hits, but pitches a complete game for the Reds, Gus Suhr of the Pittsburgh Pirates establishes a National League Record when he plays in his 822nd game. The streak ends the next day when he removes himself from the line-up to attend the funeral of his mother, Augie Galan becomes the first player in the history of the National League to hit a home run from each side of the plate in the same game. The homers come at the expense of opposing pitchers Freddie Fitsimmons and Ralph Birkofer of the Brooklyn Dodgers as the Chicago Cubs win 11-2, St. Louis Cardinals catcher Mickey Owen pulls off an unassisted double play in the 5-2 victory over the Boston Bees at Sportsman's Park. Dodgers pitcher Fred Frankhouse pitches seven innings of no-hit ball versus Cincinnati. However, the game is called on account of rain. While recognized as a no-hitter at the time, it becomes one of many no hitters struck from the record books in 1991 when MLB redefines a no-hitter as being a game in which a pitcher goes nine or more innings without giving up a hit.
