This Date in Astros History

Dec 18, 1955:Jim Clancy is born in Chicago, IL. The righthander suffers an inglorious 9-25 record with six saves as an Astro (1989-1991) after a solid career in Toronto.
Dec 16, 1988:Toronto pitcher Jim Clancy is signed to a free agent contract. Unfairly, he is viewed as the replacement for Nolan Ryan in the Astros rotation. The 32-year-old righthander is coming off an 11-13 season for the Blue Jays.
Aug 3, 1989:Cincinnati explodes for 14 runs in the first inning en route to an 18-2 massacre of the Astros. The Reds set three major league records and tie two more. Jim Clancy and Bob Forsch each allow seven tallies in the opening frame. Forsch surrenders a club-record 18 hits in his seven innings, including nine consecutive hits in the first inning. Houston hurlers surrender a team-record 26 hits.
Jul 11, 1991:Ken Oberkfell cracks a two-run double off Dave Smith in the 11th inning for a 6-4 triumph over the Cubs. A three-run shot by Luis Gonzalez off Greg Maddux stakes Houston to an early lead but George Bell tags Jim Clancy with a homer in the ninth to send it to extra innings.
