On July 21, 1945, the Philadelphia Athletics and Detroit Tigers play 24 innings and settle for a 1-1 deadlock. Les Mueller hurls 19 and two-thirds innings. Mueller allowed 13 scattered hits, walked five, struck out six and allowed just the one, unearned run.
The Reds, 11 games behind the Dodgers at the beginning of the day, stage two dramatic comebacks to snatch a doubleheader win from Los Angeles. Hal King’s clutch 3-run pinch home run with two outs wins the first game, 4 – 3, against Don Sutton, while Tony Perez’s 10th-inning hit wins the second, 3 – 2. This day will be looked upon as the turning point of the National League’s Western Division race.
