I remember that Aaron Boone walk-off homerun. IIRC Barry Larkin hit another walk-off homerun the very next night.

Ron Roenicke played with the Reds in '88? I have absolutely no memory of that.

It's no wonder you don't or anyone else. He only played in 14 games for the Reds and hit a robust .135. He played his last MLB game as a member of the Reds on May 21,1988.

I think Ron Roenicke was brought up as an injury replacement for Tracy Jones. I just checked, and the Tracer started in RF on May 4 (one day before Roenicke's first appearance as a Red). Jones didn't appear in another game until May 22 as a pinch-hitter (one day after Roenicke's last appearance as a Red).

HR: MON - Ellis Valentine (2), Larry Parrish (1). CIN - Johnny Bench (6), Dan Driessen (4).

Steve Rogers pitched a complete-game six-hitter with 10 K's to get the win for Les Expos.

I didn't realize it until Thom asked the AFLAC question, but Pete Rose got his 3000th hit with two outs in the fifth inning--an opposite-field single to left.
