    History was made in the weekend series at Wrigley Field between the Cubs and White Sox.

    1B Jose Abreu of the Chisox went on a slugging rampage, pounding 6 HR in the 3-game series, which the Sox took 2 games to 1. Prior to this feat, no White Sox player had ever slugged 6 round-trippers in a series of any number of games.

    Monday night, Albert Pujols drove in the 2,087th run of his career, moving him into 2nd place on MLB's all time RBI list.

    He has 210 more to go before he ties the man in the #1 slot (Hank Aaron).

    Saturday night, future HOFer and hobby favorite Tim Salmon smacked his 300th career HR.

    In addition to the milestone, that round-tripper gave him the top spot on the Angels' all-time career HR list, passing Tim Salmon (299).

    Blast from the past:

    9/7/1945

    The Washington Senators hosted the St. Louis Browns at Griffith Staadium and edged the Browns 3-2.

    In the game, Washington's Joe Kuhel hit an inside-the-park home run. It was the ONLY HR hit by a Senators player for all of 1945. The other 26 were all clubbed on the road.

    Source, Pat Hughes, WSCR-AM 670, Chicago.

    With their come-from-behind win against the Falcons today, the Bears have performed an on-field first. They are the first NFL team to win 2 games in the same season when they entered the 4th quarter down by at least 16 points. The Bears have already made such comebacks twice in the first 3 games of the season.

    In Game 3 of the 2020 NBA Finals, Jimmy Butler joined some high-falutin' company during the Heat's victory over the Lakers,

    Butler notched a triple-double in the game...40 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists. He is the third player in NBA Finals history to achieve a triple-double in the Finals scoring 40 or more points, joining Jerry West and Lebron James.

    The Cleveland Browns are now at 4-1, the first time ever that the new Browns have started that well.

    The last time the Browns began the season 4-1 was in 1994, before those Browns moved to Baltimore and became the Ravens. In fact, Bill Belichick was the head coach of that team.
