The Dodgers tie the major league mark for consecutive wins from the beginning of the season with style when their right-hander Tex Carleton no-hits the Reds, 3-0, for the team's ninth straight victory since Opening Day. The 33-year-old Texan from Fort Worth faces 30 batters, striking out four, in his one-hour and forty-seven-minute masterpiece against reigning World Series champion Reds at Cincinnati's Crosley Field.
In the first game of a doubleheader split, first baseman Phil Weintraub gets 11 RBIs, and player-manager Mel Ott scores six runs, drawing five walks in the Giants' 26-8 rout of the Dodgers. Brooklyn wins the nightcap 5-4 in a game shortened due to darkness.
Dave Winfield ties the major league RBI record for April, established by Dodger infielder Ron Cey in 1977 and matched by Dale Murphy of the Braves in 1985. The right fielder, who reached base at least once in every game, drives in his 28th and 29th runs of the month when the Yankees' 15-3 rout Texas in New York.
