2002: After bringing the Giants to the brink of a world championship, Russ Ortiz (14-10, 3.78) is traded by the Giants to the Braves for sophomore southpaw Damian Moss (12-6, 4.11) and minor league prospect Manuel Mateo. The 27-year old Ortiz left Game 6 with a 5-0 lead, but the Giants bullpen was unable to hold the lead and San Francisco lost the series to the Angels in seven games.

1898: John Day is named as the Giants manager. New York’s new skipper will be replaced by Fred Hoey after just 66 games the next season after the team gets off to a 29-35 start.
