At Colt Stadium, Ken Johnson becomes the first pitcher to lose a nine inning no-hitter when the Reds beat the Colt .45's, 1-0. Pete Rose, who attempting to bunt reaches second on a throwing error by the pitcher, scores the game's lone run in the top of the ninth inning when Nellie Fox boots Vada Pinson's two-out ground ball to second base.
Joe Morgan's major league record streak of 91 consecutive errorless games for a second baseman comes to an end. The Reds infielder's errant toss during a second inning run down is the first error he has committed since July 6, 1977.
The Dodgers sweep the Reds to notch their 1,000th win over the Reds, baseball's oldest professional franchise. Since 1970, Los Angeles is the only National League franchise to play over .500 ball (120-115) in Cincinnati (Riverfront Stadium/Cinergy Field).
