It's no wonder they only scored one run with that bottom of the order. That really reeks.:barf:Seaver must have just rolled his eyes when he saw that lineup posted by Sparky.

Seaver slumped a little with the bat in 1978. But if he had swung the bat in '78 like he did in 1977, there would have been a legitimate argument for him to have batted seventh in that game!

WP: Chris Reitsma (3-1)

HR: CIN - Adam Dunn (17).

This was the infamous "Ray King" game. In the bottom of the seventh inning, Austin Kearns was out while trying to score on a wild pitch. Braves catcher Javy Lopez threw to pitcher Ray King covering the plate, and in the process of applying the tag, the portly King "sat" (for lack of a better term) on Kearns' shoulder. In the eyes of many, Austin Kearns has never been quite right since.

Adam Dunn hit a pinch-hit three-run homer in the bottom of the eighth inning off Jung Bong.
