Reds/Colt 45’s April 23, 1964 Notes Part 2

March 23, 2019

For the record, in that April 23, 1964 game in which Ken Johnson lost despite hurling a no hit game, the victorious Reds scored the game’s lone run when Colt 45’s second baseman, Nelson Fox made another error, his second of the inning, on a Vada Pinson ground ball.

That play enabled Pete Rose to score. Editorial comment: Both Rose AND Pinson deserve Baseball Hall of Fame status.

With two out, the great and recently deceased, Frank Robinson made a serious bid for the Reds’ first hit, however, his long drive was hauled in by Jim Wynn.

Reds hurler, Joe Nuxhall, the youngest player to appear in a big league game, (he hurled two thirds of an inning,  in such an entity, just shy of age 16, in 1944), completed a 5 hit shutout victory, striking out Colt 45’s cleanup hitter, John Weekly to end the game.
