Happy Reds birthday, Brandon Finnegan!
April 14, 1993
Brandon Finnegan was stellar in his first start of the season, shutting out the Phillies through seven innings. In his second start, however, he was unable to find his control and walked home a run in the third inning before being pulled. The bullpen (Michael Lorenzen, Cody Reed, and Wandy Peralta) picked up the slack, though, and prevented the Bucs from getting a hit the rest of the game. According to Elias Sports Bureau, that is the first time in the modern era of baseball that the bullpen has pitched seven or more hitless innings.
