Today in Phillies History forĀ August 15th
 

It happened on this day in:

1962: Facing the Mets, Phils outfielder Don Demeter hits a pair of home runs to pace the team to a 9-3 victory. He hit his shots off of two different pitchers named Bob Miller.
1965: Masanoni Murakami becomes the first Japanese pitcher to start a major league game, as he leads the Giants to a 12-9 victory over the Phils at Candlestick. Murakami debuted the year before and, except for this start, pitched only in relief.
1983: Mike Schmidt goes deep with the bases loaded against Chicago, his team-record seventh career grand slam.
1990: Terry Mulholland threw a no-hitter against his former team, the Giants. The only batter to reach base is safe on a Charlie Hayes error, but Hayes redeems himself by snagging a sharp liner to end the game. It was the first no-hitter by a Phillie at the Vet.
