September 18, 1975 - The New York Mets defeat the Chicago Cubs, 7 - 5 at Shea Stadium. Rusty Staub becomes the first Mets' player to reach 100 RBIs in a season with a 2-run homer in the fifth. Dave Kingman sets a team record with his 35th home run of the season to win it in the ninth inning. Kingman would also hit his 35th homer of the year on this date in 1976 when he was named to the National League All Star Team for the first time.

September 18, 1962 At LA, the Aaron brothers lead the Braves to a 10 - 5 pounding of the Dodgers, and cutting the Dodger lead over the idle Giants to 3 1/2 games. Hank Aaron hits his 40th homer and Tommie Aaron accounts for three RBIs with three hits.

September 18, 1986 - For the second time in his career, Reggie Jackson belts three homers in a game, scoring four times with seven RBIs against Kansas City. At the age of 40 years four months, Reggie joins Stan Musial and Babe Ruth as the only player over 40 to accomplish the feat.

September 18, 1996 Roger Clemens fans 20 Detroit Tigers without walking a single batter, tying his record for most strikeouts in a 9-inning game. The Rocket holds the Tigers to four hits en route to a 4 - 0 shutout.
