My friends took me to this game for my birthday. IIRC, Darryl Strawberry's HR was inside-the-park as Kal Daniels misplayed a line drive off of the LF fence. The ball was a line drive that bounced off the fence, went back through Daniels' legs and toward the IF. Straw was very fast for a big guy.

Now we're entering the period when the 1999 Reds started to heat up. They entered May 3rd with a record of 9-14. They won five of the next seven, lost two straight, then won eight of nine. After losing three in a row, they reeled off eight consecutive wins. I'll never forget that season. I was 12 years old that year and it's the first (and only) successful season the Reds have had that I'm to old enough to remember. Well, I can remember bits and pieces from the 1995 playoffs but not much. I still think the Reds would have won the World Series that year if they had made the playoffs.
