Today's Card ...   Ken Raffensberger  --- 1954

                                                                         September 2-4, 2014   

On This Date in Major League
Baseball History... September 2, 1951

Always the bridesmaid and never the bride
for Cincinnati’s Ken Raffensberger,who on,
September 2, 1951 fired his fourth career  
1-hitter, downing the Cubs 7-0 at Wrigley

The crafty lefty who hurled the ball from
various arm angles and featured a forkball,
Raffensberger would never toss a no-hitter,
but would post a 119-154, 3.60 mark over
15 seasons split between the Cardinals,
Cubs, Phillies and Reds.
