Today in Phillies History for September 26th

It happened on this day in:

1929: In the first game of a double-header against Boston, Don Hurst hits his 30th home run of the year, joining teammates Chuck Klein and Lefty O'Doul in the 30-HR club. It was the first team in major-league history to feature three 30-HR hitters in a single season.
1944: In the first game of a double-header, Phillie hurler Charlie Ripple faces off against St. Louis' Al LaMacchia. Both pitchers were making their major league debuts. Ripple lasted less than 3 innings but didn't figure in the decision in a 7-6 Phillies loss.
1955: In a double-header on the last day of the season at New York, Richie Ashburn goes hitless in 7 at-bats. His final .338 average is good enough to win the batting title. In the second game, Ted Kazanski hit an inside the park home run then started a triple play on defense to end the game. The Phillies won 3-1.
1956: Brooklyn's Sal Maglie no-hits the Phils in a 5-0 win.
1988: Steve Bedrosian earns his 26th save of the year in a win over Montreal. It's also his 95th as a Phillie, breaking Tug McGraw's team record.
2015: Aaron Altherr hits an inside-the-park grand slam against Washington, as the Phillies nab an 8-2 victory.
