It Happened Today in:

1887: The Phils beat Indianapolis 24-0, the biggest blow-out in team history
1909: Team president Isreal Durham dies in Atlantic City. Durham had purchased the team the previous March.
1946: In extra innings of a game against the Giants, Phillies skipper Ben Chapman announces on the bench that he'll give $25 to any player who hits a home run. Andy Seminick, who had tied the game with a round-tripper in the eight inning, came through again to win the game and the cash prize.
1959: Right fielder Wally Post throws out 2 runners from the outfield in the same inning, tying a major-league record. The Giants win anyway, 6-0.
1959: Richie Ashburn ties a team record by hitting into three double plays in a 6-0 loss to San Francisco.
1961: The Phils and San Francisco play a 15-inning, 7-7 tie lasting 5 hours and 11 minutes. At the time, League rules prohibited starting an inning after 12:50am local time. In extra innings, both teams scored single runs in the 13th and 3 runs in the 15th innings.
1964: Chris Short threw a 5-hit shutout to beat the Cardinals, but rookie Dick Allen fanned five times.
1970: In the bottom of the 9th inning with the score tied 3-3 in a game against St. Louis, one out, and runners on first and second, Phillies skipper Frank Lucchesi moved pitcher Dick Selma (a right-hander) to first base to allow Woody Fryman (a left-hander) to face Jerry DaVanon (a right-hander). Fryman struck out DaVanon, and Selma moved back to the pitcher's position to strike out the last batter of the inning.
1995: Hosting the Reds, the Phillies drop a 1-0 game decided by an error. In the 4th, Curt Schilling allowed a 1-out single to Thomas Howard. Schilling later appeared to have Howard picked off, but first baseman Dave Hollins missed the throw. Howard scored while the ball went into the outfield.
