Sep 19, 1969:Keith Lampard, a native of England, gets his first and last major league homer. It's a two-run pinch-hit shot in the bottom of the ninth off Wayne Granger to shock the Reds, 3-2. So excited, the Brit almost runs past Jim Wynn on his way around the bases. Wynn had walked for the fourth time of the night. Houston sets an N.L. record for strikeouts with 1,125. Ironically, it's a knuckleball from Jim Bouton that sets the mark on a squad full of flamethrowers.
