» June 19, 1974:
Runners are passed in two different games tonight, depriving Giant Ed Goodson of a home run in a Cardinals–Giants match, and creating confusion in a Pirates–Dodgers match. Goodson clocks a 3rd inning pitch from Bob Gibson, then passes teammate Garry Maddox between 1B and 2B. Instead of a home run, he gets one RBI and a single. In the latter, Joe Ferguson apparently strikes out with the sacks full, and walks away, while Pirate C Manny Sanguillen agrees and rolls the ball to the mound. Lee Lacy, the LA runner on 3rd jogs to the dugout. The runner from 2B, Jimmy Wynn comes around to score but is tagged out. Lacy scurries from the dugout, slides home, and is also tagged out. Lacy, though tagged, is ruled safe according to the rules. The confusion is deemed moot as the Pirates prevail, 7–3.

Greg Luzinski singles, and Jay Johnstone and Tommy Hutton follow with doubles to make it 5–0. Mike Schmidt then hits his 22nd homer to finally drive Bonham out of the game. His replacement, Ken Crosby (making his ML debut) gives up a single to Johnny Oates for the 8th straight hit. Dick Ruthven lays down a sac bunt for the first out, but three walks, two hits and a balk make it 10–0. As historian Lyle Spatz notes, the Phils last scored 10 runs in a frame on August 13, 1948. Schmidt adds a 2nd homer to help push the final to 135.
