Maloney Blanks Dodgers For Opening Win

Filed under Cincinnati Reds, Los Angeles Dodgers
April 10, 1967

Jim Maloney shut out a retooled Los Angeles lineup as the Reds defeated the Dodgers, 1-0 in front of 28,422 fans on Opening Day at Crosley Field. Maloney (1-0) was perfect until Jim Lefebvre’s single in the fifth inning. Maloney scattered six hits and walked three in the complete game effort. Two double plays, one initiated by Maloney, allowed Maloney to wiggle out of danger in the sixth and ninth innings.

His mound counterpart, Bob Miller (0-1), deserved a better fate. Miller, making his first start since 1965, allowed only four hits through seven innings. The only run of the ball game crossed on a double play ball hit by Tommy Harper scoring Leo Cardenas in the third inning. Phil Regan, seeking another late inning victory as he did so often last season, finished with a scoreless inning of work.
