Tom Browning is perfect against the Dodgers 26 years ago today

September 16, 2014


Reds’ Tom Browning pitches a perfect game against the Dodgers on Sept 16th, 1988. A few interesting tidbits:

Only eight balls were hit out of the infield

Over three starts Browning retired 40 consecutive batter, one shy of the major league record.

Tim Belcher was almost just as good, taking a no-hitter into the 6th inning

It was the first ever Cincinnati Red perfect game

The game started three hours late due to a rain delay, so many fans went home and missed the historic game
