Today in Phillies History for May 30th

It happened on this day in:

1903: Bill Keister hit a deep fly ball to center field against Brooklyn, then raced home for an apparent inside-the-park home run. He was called out for missing second base, though, and credited with a single and an RBI for plating the runner on first. Keister was tossed from the game following a heated argument over the call.
1922: In the 10th inning of the first game of a double-header with New York, Butch Henline hits a ball into the left field bleachers with two on to win the game. He stops at second, however, and is only credited with a double. The Phillies gave up a total of 43 hits to the Giants in the two games, including a 16-7 game two loss.
1931: Chuck Klein hits home runs off the same pitcher (the Braves' Ben Cantwell) in both games of a double-header, In the second game, the Phillies tied a league record with 21 infield assists.
1935: Phils pitcher Jim Bivin gets Babe Ruth to ground out in his first at bat. Ruth then left the game against the Boston Braves, ending his major-league career
1978: Mike Schmidt stole 3 bases (all of them off of starter Bert Blyleven) as the Phillies beat the Pirates 6-1 at the Vet.
1993: The Phils connect for 6 homers on the way to an 18-1 win over the Rockies at Mile High Stadium. Darren Daulton goes deep twice, and is joined by Tommy Greene, Mariano Duncan, Dave Hollins, and Kim Batiste. They scored all of their runs in only four innings: 5th through 8th.
2001: Johnny Estrada ties a team record by hitting into three double plays in a 6-3 win over the Mets.
2007: Jamie Moyer loses to Arizona's Randy Johnson, but sets a new record for oldest left-handed starters in the process (combined age: 88 years, 90 days).
2009: Ryan Howard hits 2 home runs, including a grand slam into the 3rd deck at Citizens Bank Park, in a 9-6 Phillies win over Washington. The slam was the 8th of his career, tying Mike Schmidt's team records for most career slams by a Phillie.
2018: Third baseman Mitch Walding has a rough debut, going 0-for-4 with 4 Ks in a 8-2 loss to the Dodgers in Los Angeles. No other Phillie is known to have started the same way.
2021: Alec Bohm grounded into a double-play during the second inning of a 6-2 loss to Tampa. It was his 10th during May, the most by a Phillie in any month (for which detailed records are available.)
