Offseason[edit]

Regular season[edit]

  • April 8, 1986: In his first major league at bat, Will Clark debuted with a home run— in his first at-bat and on his first swing off of future Hall of Fame member Nolan Ryan.[8] Clark became the 11th player in history to hit a home run on his first swing in the Major Leagues.
  • August 5, 1986: Steve Carlton struck out Eric Davis for the 4000th strikeout of his career.[9]
  • September 21, 1986: Robby Thompson went 5 for 5 in a game versus the Atlanta Braves.

On August 20, 1986, Phillies pitcher Don Carman took a perfect game into the ninth inning against the Giants at Candlestick Park. Giants catcher Bob Brenly hit a long drive into the gap in left-center field. Phillies center fielder Milt Thompson was positioned to make a running catch but the ball hit the base of his glove and was ruled a hit.[10]Brenly was credited with a double. Carman lost the perfect game but the Phillies won in ten innings.[11]
