Prior to Monday, the last time the Reds lost to the Cardinals by a 1-0 score with the lone run coming via home run, was 9/2/68 at Crosley Field.  Julian Javier took Ted Abernathy deep in the 10th inning.

In that game, Bob Gibson pitched all 10 shutout innings for St. Louis (4h, 3bb, 8k) while Gary Nolan spun 9.0 scoreless frames for the Reds (5h, 2bb, 8k).  Abernathy relieved Nolan in that fateful 10th.


  • 7/19/58 vs StL: Ken Boyer homered off Alex Kellner in the 10th.
  • 9/7/56 at StL: Ken Boyer homered off Joe Nuxhall in the 7th.
  • 5/7/44 (G2) at StL: Danny Litwhiler homered off Tommy de la Cruz in the 6th.
  • 9/5/43 (G1) at StL: Whitey Kurowski homered off Clyde Shoun in the 4th.
  • 5/31/27 at StL: Taylor Douthit homered off Jackie May in the 8th.
