This Day in New York Yankees History 6/5: Manny Ramirez ties Roger Maris

On this day in 2001 the Red Sox outfielder Manny Ramirez is intentionally walked four times in one game to tie a major league record. The game lasted 18 innings and 5 hours and 52 minutes as Ramirez tied the Yankees Roger Maris in the history books.

Also on this day in 1992 the Mets first baseman Eddie Murray knocks in two RBI's to pass Yankees legend Mickey Mantle for most RBI's all time by a switch hitter. Murray's 1,509th RBI was knocked in at the old Three Rivers Stadium.

Finally on this day in 1939 the Yankees were shut out for the first and only time of the season when Tommy Bridges of the Tigers shut down the Yankees offense.
