Today in Phillies History for July 7th

It happened on this day in:

1906: The Phillies defeated Brooklyn 12-0, after having beaten them 10-0 the day before. It was the only time the team scored 10 or more runs while shutting out the opposition on consecutive days.
1909: The Phillie walk 6 straight New York batters, setting a major league record (broken the next year in the American league). With one out, starter Harry Coveleski walked four stright. With one strike on the next batter, he was replaced by Frank Corridon who walked in the next two.
1920: Mack Wheat tries to bunt over two runners, but instead hits into a triple-play when the pitcher catches his bunt and the runners can't get back to base in time. One of the runners was Art Fletcher, who had hit into a triple-play earlier in the year while a member of the Giants.
1931: On first base when Chuck Klein singled, Fred Brickell was knocked out when he ran into the Brooklyn third baseman. Manager Burt Shotton pulled his foot onto the bag, but Brickell was called out for coach's interference. The Phillies lost 5-1
1964: Outfielder Johnny Callison hits a 3-run homer with 2 out in the ninth for the NL All-Stars, as they win the mid-season classic at Shea Stadium 7-4.
1977: The Phils beat the Mets, finishing out their longest undefeated homestand. Over 8 games, they swept four games each from Pittsburgh and New York.
1993: With a 5-3 lead in the ninth, Mitch Williams allows a single and two walks to load the bases. After walking the next batter to force in a run, he's ejected. Larry Anderson allows a single but retires two to keep the game tied. It stayed that way until the 20th when Mike Williams allowed a run on two singles and an error. Lenny Dykstra won the game in the bottom of the inning with a walk-off double.
2004: Bobby Abreu becomes the first player selected for the National League All-star team by the fans in the "final vote" selection process
2009: A sell out crowd at the vet sees the Phillies drop a 4-3 loss to Cincinnati. It was the first game of a sell out streak that lasted more than 250 games.
2019: Jay Bruce goes deep twice against the Mets, giving him 10 HR as a Phillie. He also had 14 HR before being traded by Seattle. According to Stats, Inc., he was the first player to hit 10 or more HR for two teams before the All-star break.
