Atlanta's Kent Mercker threw a no-hitter against the L.A. Dodgers on April 8th, 1994. That just happened to be the 20th anniversary of Hank Aaron breaking Babe Ruth's all-time home run record. The Braves met the Dodgers in that game too......Cal Ripken ended his consecutive-game streak on September 20th, 1998 when Baltimore opposed the Yankees. Exactly 40 years earlier, Hoyt Wilhelm tossed a no-hitter for the Orioles against the Bronx Bombers as well.....Speaking of Cal Ripken, the final game of his career came on October 6th, 2001 against Boston. That same date 10 years prior, the O's played the last game ever at Baltimore's Memorial Stadium. Detroit was the opponent and Cal grounded into a game-ending double play to close the park.
