On July 19, 1966 — At Chicago, Cub Byron Browne strikes out five times against Reds starter Jim Maloney. The Reds finally win, 3 – 2, in 18 innings, with Joe Nuxhall victorious over Fergie Jenkins. Don Pavletich belts a homer in the 18th inning off Jenkins. In tomorrow’s Reds win over the Cubs, Browne will strike out another three times to set a National League record for two games on his way to leading the NL in strikeouts with 143.
