1999–Maurice Greene and Inger Miller win the 200-meter dashes at the World Championships, giving the United States a sweep of the short sprints. Greene is the first sprinter to win the 100 and 200 at a major global meet since Carl Lewis swept both at the 1984 Olympics.

2006–Marco Andretti, 19, becomes the youngest winner of a major open-wheel event, beating Dario Franchitti by 0.66 seconds to take the Indy Grand Prix of Sonoma.

2007–Veronica Campbell of Jamaica is declared the winner in a photo finish over defending 100-meter world champion Lauryn Williams of the United States at the World Track and Field championships held in Osaka, Japan. In one of the closest finishes in championship history, Carmelita Jeter of the United States takes the bronze, one hundredth of a second behind the leading duo.

2011–Ashlynn Harris makes a diving save on the final penalty kick as the expansion Western New York Flash defeat the Philadelphia Independence 5-4 on penalty kicks to win the WPS Championship game.

2011–Seattle's Lamar Neagle scores his first career hat trick on a record-setting afternoon as the Sounders beat the Columbus Crew 6-2. Seattle's offensive outburst overshadows a record-breaking day for Columbus' Jeff Cunningham. The Crew forward becomes the leading goal-scorer in MLS history when he converts a penalty kick in the 59th minute. Cunningham's 134th goal, eclipses the previous mark set by Jaime Moreno in a 15-year league career.

This Date In Baseball

Aug. 27

1897–Roger Bresnahan, later a Hall of Fame catcher, made his major league debut as a pitcher for the Washington Senators by shutting out the St. Louis Browns 3-0.

1937–Brooklyn's Fred Frankhouse pitched a rain-shortened no-hitter against the Cincinnati Reds. The game was stopped with two out in the eighth inning with the Dodgers leading 5-0.

1974–Benny Ayala of the Mets became the first National League player in 13 years to hit a home run in his first major league at-bat, connecting against Houston's Tom Griffin in New York's 4-2 victory at Shea Stadium.

1977–Toby Harrah and Bump Wills of the Texas Rangers hit back-to-back inside-the-park home runs on consecutive pitches in the seventh inning as the Rangers beat the Yankees 8-2 at Yankee Stadium.

1978–Joe Morgan of the Cincinnati Reds hit his 200th career home run to become the first player in major league history to have 200 homers and 500 stolen bases.

1982–Rickey Henderson of Oakland broke Lou Brock's 1974 record of 118 stolen bases in a season and stole three more bases in the Athletics' 5-4 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers. It gave Henderson 122 thefts in 127 games.

1999–Vladimir Guerrero's hitting streak was halted at 31 games by Cincinnati's Ron Villone, as the Reds posted a 4-1 win over Montreal. Guerrero went 0-for-2 with an intentional walk against Villone, ending the majors' longest hitting streak since 1987.

2005–Jeff Kent became the first player to hit 300 home runs as a second baseman in the Los Angeles Dodgers' 8-3 win over Houston. The homer was the 325th of his career.

2010–The Washington Nationals announced rookie sensation Stephen Strasburg had a torn ligament in his right elbow. The 22-year-old right-hander would need ligament replacement operation that requires 12 to 18 months of rehabilitation.

2010–Florida led off a game with back-to-back homers for the first time in franchise history, Chris Volstad pitched eight strong innings and the Marlins romped 7-1 past slumping Atlanta. Cameron Maybin hit the first pitch of the game into the left-field seats, ending Tommy Hanson's streak of 47 2-3 innings without giving up a homer. Logan Morrison then connected off Hanson (8-10) for his first major league home run.

2011–Justin Verlander became the majors' first 20-game winner, grinding through six innings in the Detroit Tigers' 6-4 victory over the Minnesota Twins. Verlander (20-5) became the first pitcher to win 20 games before the end of August since Arizona's Curt Schilling in 2002.

Today's birthday: Jordy Mercer, 28.
