Cubs-Reds Historic Pitching Duel
Top pitcher is Fred Toney, and the bottom is Hippo Vaughn.
May 2, 1917. Fred Toney of the Cincinnati Reds, and southpaw Hippo Vaughn both throw nine innings of no-hit ball in of the greatest pitching duels in the history of the game. In the tenth inning the Reds get on the board when Larry Kopf singles, a error by the Cubs, and an infield hit by Jim Thorpe push across a run, and Toney mows the Cubs down in order in the bottom of the 10th to preserve his no-hitter.
