2006 In the Nationals’ 3-2 victory over the Mets, Alfonso Soriano hits his 40th double and steals his 41st base of the season. The Washington outfielder, with 45 homers, becomes baseball’s first 40-40-40 player with his offensive performance at Shea Stadium. 2009 Diamondback slugger Mark Reynolds establishes a new single-season strikeout mark for the second year in a row when he misses a 1-2 breaking ball from Madison Bumgarner, his 205th K of the campaign. Before breaking his own dubious mark and extending it with another whiff in the sixth inning, the 26-year-old third baseman collected his 100th RBI of the season in Arizona's 10-8 Chase Field victory over San Francisco. 2010 Jose Lopez hits three home runs in the Mariners’ 6-3 victory over the Blue Jays at the Rogers Centre. The third baseman’s trio of round-trippers, collected off three different pitchers, accounts for nearly a third of his ten homers this season. 2010 The Diamondbacks hire Kevin Towers as the team's general manager, bypassing the interim GM Jerry Dipoto, a highly-regarded administrator within the organization and throughout baseball, for the job he did when replacing Josh Byrnes. During Towers' 14-year tenure in the same position with the Padres, San Diego won four division titles and played in the 1998 World Series against New York. 2011 Thanks to Shane Victorino's million-dollar pledge, the renovated 105-year-old Nicetown Boys & Girls Club celebrates its grand opening. The inner-city facility, now named after the Phillies' All-Star center fielder, is only the second club in the country to bear the name of a major leaguer, with the 'Flying Hawaiian' sharing the distinction with Willie Mays. 2011 According to the Associated Press, Leo Nunez, placed on the Marlins' restricted list without the club listing a reason, must return to the Dominican Republic to deal with legal issues concerning fake identification documents. The 29-year-old right-handed closer, whose real name is Juan Oviedo, used his childhood friend's ID to receive a more lucrative deal being 16 years of age instead of 17 when signing his first major league contract.
