April 28, 2012Bryce Harper made a memorable MLB debut at Dodger Stadium. In an intense contest, Harper went 1-for-3 with a seventh-inning double off Chad Billingsley and one RBI, which came via a go-ahead sac fly in the ninth inning. However, the Dodgers tied the game with two runs in the bottom of the ninth and won it in the 10th on Matt Kemp’s solo blast, his team-record 11th April homer.

April 28, 2015 – Dan Uggla’s towering three-run home run off Atlanta closer Jason Grilli capped Washington’s 13-12 come-from-behind win at Turner Field. Trailing 9-1 and 10-2 at different points in the game, the Nationals mounted the largest comeback win in Nationals history (2005-pres.). A.J. Cole made his MLB debut, but only lasted two innings before giving way to the Nationals’ bullpen.
