August 2, 1952

The Cincinnati Reds defeated the Boston Braves, 2-0, before a snoring crowd of 4,081 at Braves Field.

Those who had at least one eye open in the ninth inning likely took the opportunity to give their throats a workout.

The Reds broke a scoreless tie with a double by Ted Kluszewski, an intentional walk, two wild pitches by Braves hurler Max Sukrent and an RBI single by Eddlie Pellagrini.

Ouch.

The Braves fell to 41-56 on the season.
