Seeing he was on the Reds for only 16 games and 17 ABs, this must have been Jake Wood's only start for the Reds.

How in the world did that 1982 lineup manage to score 5 runs?

One in the second: Driessen led off with a walk, and stole 2nd. Two outs later, Oester singled to score Driessen.

Two in the fourth: With one out, Bench homered. Householder tripled, then Oester singled to score Householder. (Oester was 4-4 in this game.)

Two in the fifth: Soto led off with a single. Lawless bunted Soto to 2nd, then Milner doubled to score Soto. Cedeņo then singled to score Milner.

Concepcion at 3rd and Chaney at SS. I would have thought Sparky would have played it the other way around. Chaney always seemed more the ultility type player to me.

I thought the same thing, though this was Chaney's ninth consecutive start at SS.

Absolutely. :(
