1918 The Pirates break the longest scoreless tie in baseball history when the team tallies two runs in the top of the twenty-first inning for an eventual 2-0 victory at Braves Field. The Giants and Reds will match the mark in 1967 when each team is held scoreless for twenty innings until the decisive run scores in the next frame on a bases-loaded walk to Dick Groat.
1952 Boston starter Max Surkont matches goose eggs with the Reds' Ken Raffenberger during the first eight innings in a scoreless duel at Braves Field. The hard-luck right-hander will lose the game when he uncorks two wild pitches in the ninth inning, allowing two unearned runs to score.
1978 Pete Rose, making the last out when he strikes out on a Gene Garber change-up, goes 0-for-4, ending his 44-game hitting streak, one contest shy of breaking the National League record. The Reds' third baseman tied Willie Keeler's 1897 National League record last night with a hit off future Hall of Famer Phil Niekro.
