June

  • June 4 - Mark Ellis hits for the cycle at McAfee Coliseum as his Oakland Athletics defeat the Boston Red Sox, 5-4 in 11 innings. He hit a triple in the 2nd inning, a solo home run in the 4th and a double in the 6th. Although a fielder's choice in the 8th with the A's holding the lead seemingly ended his run for the cycle, a rally by the Red Sox in the 9th pushed extra innings, allowing Ellis to get the single he needed in the 10th inning.
  • June 16 - The Cubs and Padres each collect only two hits as Russell Branyan's home run in the ninth inning gives San Diego a 1-0 win. The Cubs' Carlos Zambrano takes a no-hitter into the eighth, while Padres starter Chris Young allows no hits before being ejected in the fourth following a brawl.

September

  • September 6 - Rick Ankiel's stunning one-month return to baseball as a hitter is mired by controversy when the New York Daily News reports that he purchased 12 month's worth of HGH from a Florida pharmacy from January to December 2004. A few days later, Jay Gibbons of the Orioles is reported to also have received HGH from the same pharmacy. Ankiel did not deny using HGH prior to MLB's official banning of the substance in 2005, stating he used it during that time under the care of a licensed physician.
  • September 7 - Curtis Granderson of the Tigers hits his 20th home run of the season, becoming the sixth player in major league history, and the first since 1979, to join the 20-20-20 Club, indicating 20 doubles, 20 triples, and 20 home runs in the same season. He ends the season with 38 doubles, 23 triples, and 23 home runs.
  • September 8 - The 50th and 51st home runs of the season by Alex Rodriguez are his 48th and 49th as a third baseman. The first breaks his own AL record for the position, while the second breaks the major league record for the position which had stood since 1980 (Mike Schmidt, tied by Adrian Beltre in 2004). Rodriguez's 50th home run also makes him the first player in major league history to collect 50 home runs, 130 runs scored, 130 RBI and 20 stolen bases in a single season (the previous closest player was Larry Walker in 1997, who fell one home run short with 49 HR, 143 runs, 130 RBI and 33 steals).
  • September 16:
    • Jim Thome of the White Sox, playing in his 2,000th game, becomes the 23rd player in major league history to reach the 500 home run milestone when he hits a walk-off home run off Dustin Moseley of the Angels to win the game 9-7, making 2007 the first season in history in which three players have hit their 500th homer in the same season. It is also the first time that the 500-homer mark has been reached with a walk-off shot.
    • David Wright of the Mets hits his 30th home run of the season to go with 31 stolen bases, becoming only the fifth player in major league history to become a member of the 30-30 club before the age of 25, in a 10-6 loss to the Phillies.
    • Todd Jones of the Tigers becomes the 21st pitcher in major league history to record 300 saves.
    • Todd Helton hits his 300th career home run.
  • September 18 - Moisés Alou of the Mets, age 41, hits in his 22nd consecutive game, a modern era record for a player over 40.
  • September 19 - Andy Pettitte becomes the 110th pitcher to earn 200 major league victories in the Yankees' 2-1 win over the Orioles.
  • September 21
    • Barry Bonds announces that his tenure (1993-2007) with the San Francisco Giants has ended, after the team indicates it will not sign him for 2008.
    • Moisés Alou extends his hitting streak to 25 games, breaking the Mets single-season record shared by Mike Piazza and Hubie Brooks. In the same game, the Marlins commit a franchise-high six errors in a 9-6 loss. Eight of the nine runs were unearned as a result of the errors, two of them by Miguel Cabrera. Two days later, Alou surpasses David Wright's overall club mark of 26 games, which spanned two seasons. The streak ends at 30 games on the 26th, a new major league record for a player over 40.
  • September 22 - The Boston Red Sox become the first major league team to earn a playoff spot with an 8-6 defeat of the Devil Rays.
  • September 25

    • Shawn Green gets his 2,000th hit when he singles up the middle off of Nationals pitcher Jason Bergmann.
    • Prince Fielder becomes, at age 23, the youngest player ever to hit 50 home runs after connecting twice in the Brewers' 9-1 victory over the Cardinals.
  • September 26
    • Cardinals slugger Albert Pujols hits his 32nd home run of the season in the first inning against the Brewers, giving him 100 RBI and making him the first player in major league history to have at least a .300 batting average with 30 homers and 100 RBI in his first seven seasons.
    • Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips homers in the first inning off Juan Gutiérrez of the Astros, making him only the second player at his position to collect 30 home runs and steal 30 bases in the same season. Alfonso Soriano has accomplished the feat four times.
    • Red Sox third baseman Mike Lowell collects five RBI in a 11–6 Boston victory over the Athletics, raising his total to 116 and setting a new team record for most RBI in a season by a third baseman; Butch Hobson collected 112 RBI in 1977.
    • The New York Yankees secure their 13th consecutive postseason berth with a 12-4 rout of the Devil Rays.
    • Barry Bonds goes 0-for-3 in his final game with the Giants, an 11-3 loss to the visiting Padres.

  • September 30
    • The New York Mets lose to the Florida Marlins 8-1, completing one of the worst collapses in major league history by squandering a 7-game lead with 17 games remaining in the NL East race, and finish the season one game behind the Philadelphia Phillies, who defeat the Nationals 6-1 to clinch the division title for the first time since 1993.
    • Jimmy Rollins collects his 20th triple of the season, making him the seventh member of the 20-20-20 club and the second new member this year along with Curtis Granderson; this also marks the first time in major league history that two batters record 20-20-20 seasons during the same year. He also becomes the fourth member of the 20-20-20-20 club, as well as the first player in major league history to collect at least 20 doubles, 20 triples, 20 home runs and 40 stolen bases in a single season; this also marks the first time that two players record 20-20-20-20 seasons during the same year (Granderson met the mark earlier in September of 2007), and the second time that a batter had a 30-30 season and a 20-20-20-20 season during the same year (Willie Mays accomplished the feat in 1957). Rollins ends the season with 38 doubles, 20 triples, 30 home runs, and 41 stolen bases.
    • Bruce Froemming receives a standing ovation from his Milwaukee hometown crowd prior to working his last regular-season game after a record 37 *full* seasons as a major league umpire; his final game overall takes place on October 8 in the Indians-Yankees AL Division Series.
