September 6, 1933: After losing the first game of a double header, 7-3, the Reds blast the Brooklyn Dodgers, 18-8 on 21 hits at Redland Field. Cincinnati led, 8-0, after two innings, and added ten more in the sixth.
Infielder Jo-Jo Morrissey had 803 ABs for the Reds in 1932 and 1933, the Cincinnati career record for most ABs without a home run.

Comment: Jo-Jo must have been the 1930’s version of Juan Castro…only Castro’s hung on longer and gets paid a lot more.
