This Day In Yankees History 5/23

On this day in 1948 Joe DiMaggio hit three consecutive home runs off of Cleveland Indians pitcher Bob Feller in a 6-5 Yankees victory.

In 1962 Joe Pepitone hit two home runs in the same inning becoming only the second Yankees player to ever do this, the first being Joe DiMaggio. The Yankees would win 13-7 over the Kansas City Royals on this day.

On this day in 1998 David Wells extended his consecutive outs streak to 38 consecutive outs on the heels of his perfect game. David retired his last 10 batters against the Kansas City Royals before the perfect game and retired the first batter, Darren Lewis, against the Boston Red Sox.
