Today In cubs History: April 30

1949

Andy Pafko's great catch to tnd the game at Wrigley turns into a game-winning, two run, inside the park home run when umpire Al Barlick rules it a trap. Rocky Nelson's home run, which gives the Cardinals a 4-3 victory, travels only 220' because he keeps running while Pafko is screaming at the umpire.

1970 Billy Williams of the Cubs becomes first National League player to play 1000 consecutive games.

2000 Diamondback hurler Randy Johnson beats the Cubs, 6-0 becoming only the third pitcher baseball history to win six games in April.
