On September 15, 1975 — Braves rookie Al Autry goes five innings and gets the win in a 4 – 3 decision over the Astros. Willie Montanez’s 3-run homer is the big blow for Atlanta as a crowd of just 970 watches. For Autry, this is his only big league decision: Earl Huckleberry, of the 1935 Athletics, is the last pitcher to bow out with a 1-0 record.
