Regular season

  • May 2, 1917: For the first, and to date only, time in major league history, a regulation nine innings was played at Wrigley Field without either team logging a hit. Fred Toney of the Cincinnati Reds and Hippo Vaughn of the Cubs dueled for 9 hitless innings. In the top of the tenth, Reds outfielder Jim Thorpe drove in the winning run in the 10th inning.[1] The Reds scored on a couple of hits after Vaughn had retired the first batter, while Toney continued to hold the Cubs hitless in the bottom of the inning, winning the game for the Reds.
