Bob Welch pitches a 6-hitter and hits his first career homer‚ off Mario Soto in the 6th‚ to lead the Dodgers past the Reds‚ 1-0. Welch is the 11th pitcher in ML history to homer in a 1-0 game‚ and it will not occur again this century. The last to do so‚ according to historian Bob Davids‚ was Juan Pizarro‚ in 1971.
