September 10, 1914: The Reds Allow Just One Hit During a 3-2 Cardinals Win in Cincy

     On September 10, 1914, in the midst of a no-hitter at Redland Field in Cincinnati, Reds left hander Rube Benton walked the first three Cardinals batters he faced, before being lifted for a reliever by the name of Phil Douglas. The no-no was still intact, and the Reds had a slim two run lead when Douglas took the ball, but the wheels would fall off the Reds bus at a rapid rate, as the reliever walked in two runs, then surrendered a hit to Ivey Wingo to give the Cardinals a 3-2 lead. The hit proved to be the only Cardinals hit of the ballgame, as they found a way to the win column in a rather unorthodox fashion.
