2019 MLB Top Weekly Moments Recap (August 2-August 8)


A lot happened around Major League Baseball this week, from record-breaking performances to a pitcher playing the outfield better than most outfielders.

 

Craziest stat of the year? The Orioles became the first team in MLB history to record multiple home runs in ten consecutive games, and then they became the first team in MLB history to give up multiple home runs in ten consecutive games.

 

 

 

In his first start with the Astros, Aaron Sanchez led a combined no-hit effort by Houston. It was the 14th combined no-hitter in MLB history.

 

 

 

 

Nelson Cruz records second three-homer game in ten days and becomes the oldest player with two three-homer games in one season.

 

 

 

 

Cubs sign two-time All-Star catcher Jonathan Lucroy following Willson Contreras’ injury.

 

 

 

 

Phillies pitcher Vince Velasquez played left field deep into extra innings… and looked like a natural. He was the first starting pitcher with an outfield assist in 39 years, and he made a diving catch that had a 15 percent catch probability.
