    Ron Robinson pitched a perfect game for 8.2 innings. With one out to go, pinch-hitter Wallace Johnson broke up the perfect game with a single, and Tim Raines then followed with a home run to cut the Reds' lead to 3-2. John Franco then relieved Robinson, and induced Johnny Paredes to ground out to 2B Jeff Treadway for the final out. Pascual Perez pitched a complete-game five-hitter in a losing effort for Les Expos. Reds bench coach and former 2B Tommy Helms served as interim manager, as manager Pete Rose served the first day of his 30-day suspension for shoving umpire Dave Pallone in a game vs. the Mets on April 30.

    IIRC, they called that Phillies team was known as the "Wheeze Kids" a play on the 1950 Phillies team nicknamed the "Wiz Kids." The 83 Phils won their division with the heart of the Big Red Machine helping lead the way.

    Retrosheet said Daniels charged the mound after being brushed back after Sabo's homer. Sounded like a wild night at the old ball yard.
    Too bad Robinson couldn't get his perfect game. If he had the Reds would have had two pitchers that season with perfecto's.

    You would be correct.
    It wasn't just Rose, Perez and Morgan who were older than dirt: Carlton, Schmidt, Maddox, Matthews, Diaz, DeJesus, Greg Gross, Bill Robinson, John Denny, Ruthven, Ron Reed, McGraw, Monge - even the great Porfie Altamirano were over 30.
    They even replaced the "young" (42) Pat Corrales with 59-year-old Paul Owens (though I always thought he was much older).
