    TRANSCRIPT: "The Reds extended their major league record to fifteen consecutive errorless games, byt while the defence held up, the pitching did not--Houston got eighteen hits off five Cincinatti pitchers, including this two run single by Astro starter Doug Konieczny in a four run second inning. It came off Red starter Tome Carroll."
