YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN THERE!!!

1930 Ken Ash got a win in relief for the Reds with a one pitch relief effort that got three outs.

With Hack Wilson on third and Danny Taylor on first, Charlie Grimm hit a grounder to second. Hod Ford fired to the plate, Wilson returned toward third, and Clyde Sukeforth and Tony Cuccinello got Wilson out in a pickle. Grimm made the turn at first base, and Sukeforth quickly threw to first where Joe Stripp applied the tag. That left Danny Taylor – who tried to go to third on the throw that got Grimm. Stripp made a fine throw to third and Taylor was out. Triple play.

The Reds then rallied to take the lead in the next inning – Ash got the win in relief.

In 1946, Rudy York helps the Red Sox clobber the Browns.

In 2009, Josh Willingham helps the Nationals clock the Brewers.

1988 Tommy John commits three errors on the same play – bobbling a grounder, throwing the ball into right field, and then messing up a relay throw – which allowed two runs to score.

2011 Ervin Santana holds Cleveland without a hit in a 3 – 1 win for the Angels.
