    Americans love a winner. Americans will not tolerate a loser....Americans play to win all of the time. I wouldn't give a hoot in hell for a man who lost and laughed...the very idea of losing is hateful to an American.

    Warren Spahn pitched a complete-game six-hitter to get the win for the Braves. Reds RHP Jess Dobernic made his final major-league appearance in this game.
    Eddie Stanky will be my name of the day. He was born Edward Raymond Stankiewicz in 1915. His parents changed their last name to Stanky when Eddie was young. A lot of immigrants did this back then to fit in to the American way of life better. Stanky played from 1943 to 1953 for the Cubs,Giants,Braves,Dodgers and Cardinals as an infielder. To say he was a fiery player is understating it a little. During his big league career he was thrown out of games 26 times as a player and 22 times as a manager. He played on three World Series teams for the Dodgers,Braves and Giants. All three of those franchises eventually relocated. He managed the Cardinals(1952-1955) and White Sox(1966-1968). He agreed to manage the Texas Rangers in 1977 and managed one game,winning it. He decided managing wasn't for him any longer and quit. One funny thing I read about him was that while playing for Macon in the minor leagues he fell in love with the owners daughter and married her. Shortly after the marriage he was sold to the Milwaukee Brewers of the American Association. How's that for a welcome into the family!



    Reds go 9-9 in this set of games in Reds baseball history.
