Ken Holtzman No-Hitter

On this day in 1971, Ken Holtzman walked 4, struck out 6, and no-hit the Big Red Machine. In the lineup that day for the Reds: Hal McRae, Lee May, Johnny Bench, Tony Perez, George Foster, and Dave Concepion.

Holtzman also scored the only run of the game. He reached on a Tony Perez error in the third, and scored on a Glenn Beckert single.
