Fun Cards Submission: 1961 Baseball Scoops Michael Lorenzen @Lorenzen55

Lorenzen 486

Reds rookie pitcher Michael Lorenzen stepped up yesterday, holding the Pittsburgh Pirates to only three hits over six innings, striking out four batters. It’s a nice rebound for the young pitcher, who was roughed up a little by the Brewers in his first start. Sure, they only scored three runs, but if the Brewers even score once, you should consider yourself roughed up.

TWJ contributor Patrick sent over this “fun card” in the style of the 1961 Baseball Scoops set to commemorate Lorenzen’s first victory.
