This day in baseball: One-pitch victory

With just one pitch, Ken Ash of the Cincinnati Reds was credited with not only a full inning of work, but also with the 6-5 victory over the Cubs on July 27, 1930.  Entering the game in relief of Larry Benton, Ash managed to induce a triple play ball from the Cubs’ Charlie Grimm at Redland Field.  Ash was then pulled for a pinch hitter in the bottom of the inning, when Cincinnati took the lead for good.
