This Day in Giants History, May 6, 1953: One Assist

The Giants tie the National League record for the fewest number of assists in a 9-inning game with just one‚ in a 8-5 win over Chicago at the Polo Grounds. The only assist comes in the fourth inning with one out and a runner on first. Cub pitcher Paul Minner attempts a sacrifice bunt, but Giant pitcher Sal Maglie catches the bunt and throws to first, getting the runner before he can get back to the bag. All other outs the Cubs make are on flys, pop-ups and strikeouts. The box score and play-by-play are here.
