The Reds blew a six-run lead in the ninth inning, as the Cardinals scored seven runs in the ninth off David Weathers and Danny Graves. Losing pitcher Danny Graves entered the game with two on, two outs and a 9-5 lead, and promptly served up a three-run homer to Jim Edmonds to cut the lead to 9-8. Mark Grudzielanek then reached on an error by Sean Casey, and Graves then gave up a two-run homer to John Mabry.

I almost became ill while rereading the box score for today's thread, and I realized what game this was.

That 1980 starting line-up defines "Sunday special". Ick. Was that game on a Sunday? It had to be.

Wish the Reds had somebody like Sam Mejias (his line as a red .283/.318/.358/.676) in CF right now.

Friday night. The first game of a four-game weekend series against the Cubs.

It looked like the Reds were starting the jayvees against the Cubs. I'm not certain, but I think Dan Driessen, George Foster, and Dave Collins were all nursing injuries--this was Harry Spilman's fifth consecutive start at 1B, Hector Cruz's third straight start in LF, and the ninth straight start for the platoon of Cesar Geronimo and Sam Mejias in CF. Additionally, Johnny Bench had started the last four games before this one, and John McNamara made it a point that season that Bench would catch no more than four games in a row before getting a day off. (Bench started behind the plate in five consecutive games only one time the entire season, and that was during a stretch that saw two off days mixed in). Also, Ron Oester had made only one start this season at this point, so Junior Kennedy was still the de facto starting 2B.

Yuck! I remember this one too. Just an awful loss that summed up this team. If Graves downfall hadn't already started this certainly accelerated it.

Thanks. I was 9 during the summer of 1980, and enjoyed that team. But had mercifully blocked out all memories of that line-up.

The lineup is not as bizarre as 5/2/10 but it isn't a real pretty lineup. I wonder what Johnny Mac was thinking in those days?

I wonder how JB felt about hitting behind Harry Spilman??

I always thought that '80 team was smoke and mirrors. I don't know how they won 89 games.
