This Day in Baseball History
On June 19, 1938, Cincinnati Reds pitcher Johnny Vander Meer continues his hitless innings streak for three and one-third innings against the Boston Bees. Vander Meer, coming off two straight no-hitters, sees the streak come to an end when he gives up a single to Deb Garms in the fourth inning.
