Today in Phillies History for July 19th

It happened on this day in:

1902: The Phillies spoil the managerial debut of New York's John McGraw, beating the Giants 4-3.
1960: Juan Marichal, in his major-league debut, held the Phils to only 1 hit for a 2-0 Giants victory. Clay Dalrymple's pinch hit single with 2 out in the seventh is the only hit.
1963: Roy Sievers hits his 300th home run, a 2-run shot in the 9th inning that beats Roger Craig and the Mets 2-1. It was Craig's 14th straight loss
1977: Greg Luzinski homered in the All-Star Game held in Yankee Stadium, contributing to a 7-5 NL victory. Mike Schmidt was also on the team, but was only used as a pinch runner.
1993: John Kruk is hit in the groin by an errant pick-off throw from Mitch Williams in Los Angeles. The throw shatters his cup and results in an injury that will lead to a testicular cancer diagnosis the following spring.
