This Day In New York Yankees History 9/2

On this day in 1996 David Cone comes back from a major aneurysm surgery in his throwing arm to throw seven no hit innings. The Yankees would beat Oakland 5-0 in this game with Yankees closer Mariano Rivera giving up a hit in the 8th inning.

On this day in 2001 for the first time in major league history four teams beat opponents 1-0 on the same day when the Yankees beat the Red Sox, The Padres beat the Diamondbacks, the Astros beat the Brewers, and the Blue Jays beat the Tigers all by the same score.

On that same day in 2001 was when Carl Everett singled to left with two outs against Mike Mussina in Fenway Park ruining his perfect game bid in the 9th inning. Moose was one strike away from perfection before the lazy single.
