On this day in baseball history

2000:

The Yankees sweep their cross-town rivals in the first double-ballpark doubleheader since 1903 with identical scores, 4-2 in an afternoon tilt at Shea and 4-2 in an evening contest at Yankee Stadium. It proves to be quite an interesting day in New York as Mike Piazza is hospitalized after being beaned by Roger Clemens, Dwight Gooden gets his first win at the Flushing Meadow ballpark since 1994, and a bizarre obstruction call on Mets’ first baseman Todd Zeile causes the first game to be played under protest.

Fun Fact Alert!!

As of now, the 40-45 Red Sox are closer to 1st in their division than the 48-34 Pirates.
