Starting pitcher Paul Wilson failed to record an out in the eight batters he faced, and all eight runners scored in the Dodger's ten-run first inning. This game was notable for showing a grinning Dan O'Brien during the Reds telecast. While the image was obviously taken out of context, it nonetheless struck a sour chord with the Reds faithful, who were upset that O'Brien seemed carefree while the team dug a ten-run deficit before their first turn at bat in front of over 29,000 spectators at GABP.

MLB Network showed that game a few months ago.

I hope John Courtright's family recorded it since it was his only MLB game. :) He was another player from that year I had no recollection. For good reason too.

Thanks Klu,

I always enjoy the look back at seasons past.

Wonder what the circumstances were for Courtright to make his "one and done" appearance that game and then gone from the Reds" Well I decided to look it up and found out from Baseball-Reference that Courtright was then traded by the Reds June 8th, 1995 to the Minnesota Twins for Dave McCarty. Courtright never made it back to the majors.
