Today in Phillies History for August 27th

Phillies' All-time Record for Today:

48 wins, 51 losses, and 1 ties (for a winning percentage of 48.0 percent)

It Happened Today in:

1903: The Phils issue 17 free passes to Brooklyn and lose 11-10. Starter Fred Mitchell allowed 12 walks, a hit batsman, and a wild pitch.
1948: Pitcher Art Lopatka files suit against the Phillies, asking for $250,000 in damages. Loptaka alleged that when he was hit in the hand by a batted ball while throwing batting practice in April 1946, the team's trainer refused treatment for the "minor" injury. Another doctor later later diagnosed a broken bone, which subsequently became infected, ending his career.

1987: Mike Schmidt hits career home run #522 off of San Diego's Ed Whitson to move past Ted Williams and Willy McCovey for ninth place on the all-time home run leader board.
2000: Tied 1-1 in the bottom of the 10th, Bobby Abreu leads off the inning with an inside-the-park home run to end the game.
