WP: Pete Schourek (1-0)
LP: Ramon Martinez (0-1)
HR: CIN - Benito Santiago (1). LA - Mike Piazza (1).

The Reds took a 1-0 lead in the best-of-five series as they jumped on Ramon Martinez for four runs in the first inning and never looked back, thanks to a two-run double by Hal Morris and a two-run homer by Benito Santiago.

I was unable to watch any of the 1995 postseason, as MLB experimented with the television format and started all postseason games at the same time. My local affiliate caught the biggest case of Indians Bandwagon Fever you ever saw, and chose to televise all of the Tribe's games instead of the Reds--cementing my distain for all things Cleveland.

I was in the same boat as you. I couldn't see the Reds play because of this stupid regional coverage MLB had this season. You would have thought after not having post season baseball the year before that MLB would have done anything to have made all the games viewable for everyone.

This was the year before I started following baseball. But I remember the 1971 Topps Cards of this game with Ty Cline sliding into home,IIRC.
