Ron Villone pitched a no-hitter through 5.2 innings, and Villone and Scott Williamson combined on a one-hit shutout for the Reds. The only hit for the Diamondbacks was a two-out single by Tony Womack in the sixth inning. Randy Johnson pitched a complete-game seven-hitter with 17 K's for the D-Backs. Dmitri Young hit a long home run off the plexiglass enclosing the yellow seats in LF. The Reds extended their winning streak to nine.

I was at this game. A buddy of mine and I had seats only about 10 rows back from the visitors' bullpen, and we watched Randy Johnson warm up before the game. I have never seen anyone throw that hard! I've heard catcher's mitts pop before, but the mitt sounded like it was exploding when it caught Johnson's fastball. And the ball hissed as it traveled from the mound to the plate!

Interesting (to me at least) that there are 3 future Reds in the Cardinals starting lineup: Jablonski, Grammas and Lawrence. I never tire of reminding people that Brooks Lawrence went 13-0 before losing a game for the '56 Redlegs. :)

Speaking of Riverfront Stadium...it was on this date (June 30) in 1970 that good ol' Riverfront opened. It may have been cookie-cutter and had artificial turf and shared with the Bengals but, man oh man, the baseball thrills she presented to Reds fans, especially in the 70's. :thumbup:

That was a real getaway day lineup for the Reds. No Perez,Concepcion or Geronimo. No Griffey either but I don't know if he was up yet with the Reds that season. Sparky also put Bench at 3rd to give him a "rest".

Griffey had been up in April, but he was in Indianapolis at this point of the season.
