Royals 9-3, Indians 0-10

Mike Aviles hit a three-run homer and finished with a career-high five RBIs, and visiting Cleveland beat Kansas City to split the first day-night doubleheader in Kauffman Stadium history. The Royals’ Jeremy Guthrie shut down Cleveland in a 9-0 victory in the opener, but Will Smith couldn’t do the same after getting recalled from Triple-A Omaha for the nightcap. In the opener of a doubleheader caused by Friday night’s rainout, Guthrie allowed six hits over 6 2/3 innings.

On this date

1931 — Wes Ferrell of the Cleveland Indians pitched a 7-0 no-hitter over brother Rick and the St. Louis Browns. Wes also knocked in four runs with a homer and a double.

1933 — In a strange play at home plate, catcher Luke Sewell of the Washington Senators tagged out two Yankees runners on the same play. Lou Gehrig had held up, thinking a fly ball would be caught. Dixie Walker closed up on him, and both were tagged out trying to score.

1981 — Steve Carlton struck out Montreal’s Tim Wallach in the first inning of the Philadelphia Phillies’ 6-2 victory over the visiting Expos to become the sixth major league pitcher — and first left-hander — to strike out 3,000 batters.

1986 — Roger Clemens set a major league record by striking out 20 batters as the Boston Red Sox defeated the Seattle Mariners 3-1.

2001 — Geoff Jenkins homered twice, tying a major league record with five homers in two games to lead the Milwaukee Brewers to a 10-0 win over the Montreal Expos. Jenkins is the 22nd player to hit five in two games and the first NL player to do it in 10 years.
