The Story – At home, and battling ‘The Big Red Machine’, Bob Gibson had an ‘odd’ day by the standards he had set for himself.  Battling the talented Reds’ offense, Gibson pitched 7 innings while giving up 10 hits and only striking out 4.  But in those 4 strikeouts came #3,000 of his career against Cesar Geronimo.

Baseball History – Gibson struck out 3,117 batters over the course of his 17-year career.  He currently ranks in 14th place on the all-time list.
