On May 21, 1952 — After leadoff batter Billy Cox grounds out against Ewell Blackwell, the Whip loses his snap. The Dodgers then score 15 runs in the 1st inning as a record 19 consecutive batters reach first base (10 hits, 7 walks and two hit batters). Captain Pee Wee Reese walks twice in reaching base safely three times. Andy Pafko is thrown out trying to steal third base, and Duke Snider mercifully strikes out to end the barrage against the Reds. The Dodgers score 15 runs on 15 RBIs in the frame, and coast at home, 19 – 1. Winning pitcher Chris Van Cuyk has the most hits with four – two in the 1st inning off Bud Byerly and Frank Smith, while Bobby Morgan has a pair of two-run homers and Snider another two-run homer. The Reds’ lone run is a homer by reserve catcher Dixie Howell.
