    Giants won the game 7-4, but the Reds came back to win 10 of their next 13 against the Giants, Dodgers, Phillies and Braves.

    Elmer Riddle led the league with a 2.24 ERA and Johnny Vander Meer took the strike out crown with 202. Vander Meer, of course, pitched back to back no hitters in 1938 one happening at the first night game at Ebbet's Field. in Brooklyn. He also pitched the longest 0-0 tie in baseball history. If anyone knows when and who this was against, can you please let us know?

    The Reds finished the season at 88-66, good enough for third place, 12 games behind the Brooklyn Dodgers.

    This is Vander Meer's 1949 Bowman card.
