WP: Gary Nolan (1-1)

HR: CIN - George Foster (4).

Gary Nolan pitched a complete-game five-hitter with 6 K's to get the win for the Reds, but the big story was the change that Reds manager Sparky Anderson made to his lineup. With his club entering the game with a disappointing 12-12 record, Anderson decided to add some offense to his lineup by moving Pete Rose to 3B and opening an OF position for 26-year-old slugger George Foster, who responded with a two-run homer and a double.

I am thinking this idea just may work!! :thumbup:

It will never work. Rose can't field and Foster is a bum. Vukovich provides better defense. This is the start of the Reds' downfall.

I don't remember Driessen playing LF.

I remember listening to this game and I'm pretty sure I kept score too. The first batter of the game Ralph Garr hit a topper to Rose at 3rd. According to Marty, not an easy play,but Rose made the play easily and it was all good from there on out. This move by Sparky made the 1975 and 1976 so great. It allowed Foster to get into the lineup amd made that lineup solid from top to bottom. In the book The Machine how this came about is pretty well detailed and worth reading if you are too young to remember.
