- In an afternoon game in 1903, it was called because of unusual darkness, Giants’ pitcher Red Ames, making his major league debut, tosses a five-inning no-hitter against the Cardinals. The New York right-hander, who also will no-hit the Superbas on Opening Day in 1909 before yielding a single with one out in the tenth, will have both of his no-hit bids discounted after the 1991 change of rules no longer give credit for no-hit performances in games played for less than nine innings or for contests where the first hit is given up in extra innings.
- The Cardinals returned Jim Brown to Topeka (Western Association) as part of a conditional deal in 1915.
- With his 6-5 victory over New York at Sportsman’s Park in 1941, Cardinals right-hander Howie Krist finishes the season, 10-0. Spud’s perfect season establishes a National League record for the most wins in a season by a pitcher without a defeat.
- The Cardinals, in 1971, trade Fred Rico and Dan Ford to the Minnesota Twins for Stan Williams.
- The Cardinals purchased Barry Lersch from the Atlanta Braves in 1974.
