Sandy Koufax of the Los Angeles Dodgers strikes out the side on nine pitches, becoming the first pitcher in major league history to achieve the feat twice. In spite of this third-inning dominance against the Cincinnati Reds, Koufax loses the game, 3-0 as Jim Maloney tosses 6 innings of no-hit ball against the Dodgers‚ before leaving with a pulled muscle. John Tsitouris relieves and pitches hitless ball until two are out in the 9th inning when Frank Howard beats out an infield single. Deron Johnson provided all the offense for Reds with a 3 run homerun.
