Oct 21, 1960:Franklin Stubbs is born in Richlands, NC. He might best be remembered in Houston as the answer to the trivia question "Who played first base for the Astros in between Davis and Bagwell?" His lone year in Houston was 1990 when he contributed a .261 average along with a career-best 23 homers and 71 RBIs.
May 21, 1990:Eric Anthony goes yard off Ted Power in the bottom of the eleventh for a 3-2 Houston win over the Pirates. Juan Agosto gets the victory. Franklin Stubbs also homers.
Jul 25, 1990:Danny Darwin goes the distance on five hits in a 5-1 victory in Atlanta. Eric Yelding goes 4-for-4, swipes two bases and drives home two as the offensive star. But it's Franklin Stubbs who enters the record books, becoming only the 15th major leaguer to play an entire game at first base without making a putout.
Aug 13, 1990:Franklin Stubbs belts two homers and drives in four to pace a 7-2 triumph in Chicago. Mark Portugal goes the distance and drives in two runs himself.

Stubbs doubles home Eric Yelding in the first inning, smashes a solo shot off Lee Smith in the ninth, then singles off Frank DiPino in the 11th. He steals second then scores on a base hit by Mark Davidson. Stubbs' four hits account for half of the Astros' output.
Sep 26, 1990:Franklin Stubbs drives in six as the Astros blast the Dodgers, 10-1. Jim Deshaies hurls a four-hitter. Stubbs clubs his 22nd homer, a three-run shot, to break open a game that saw six Astros score after reaching base on walks.
