Today in Giants' History -- September 10

1924 - At the Polo Grounds, the Giants rip the Braves 22 - 1 in the opener of a doubleheader. Frankie Frisch goes 6-for-6 before grounding out.

1963: At New York, the Giants trail 3 - 0 after 7 innings when manager Alvin Dark sends up consecutive Alous to bat in the 8th. Pinch hitter Jesus Alou grounds out, pinch hitter Matty Alou strikes out, and leadoff hitter Felipe Alou bounces back to P Carlton Willey. The Giants lose, 4 - 2. Willie McCovey's 38th homer and Orlando Cepeda's 29th account for the SF scoring.

1967: At Candlestick Park, San Francisco hurler Gaylord Perry's 40-inning team record consecutive scoreless streak comes to an end as the Cubs score an unearned run in the seventh inning of 2-1 loss to Giants. The future Hall of Fame member will match his franchise mark with another string of scoreless innings in 1970.
