With two outs and nobody on, pinch-hitter Ty Cline got things started with a walk. Cline advanced to second on a single by Pete Rose, and scored on a single by Bobby Tolan to give the Reds a 3-2 lead. Wayne Granger and Don Gullett then snuffed out a potential Pirates rally in the ninth as the Reds completed the 3-0 sweep in the best-of-five series to win the NL Championship. The Reds would advance to the World Series to face the AL Champion Orioles, who swept the Twins 3-0 in the ALCS, with Game 1 to be played in Cincinnati on October 10.

The Reds concluded the season in third place in the NL West with an 89-73 record, 3 games behind the Astros and Dodgers, who finished the season tied for first place. The Astros would defeat the Dodgers in a one-game playoff to determine the NL West Champion, so the Reds eventually finished 3.5 games behind the Astros.

HR: PIT - Jose Lind (1).

Tom Browning, Rob Dibble, and Randy Myers combined on a six-hitter for the Reds, who evened the best-of-seven series at 1-1. Dibble and Myers combined on three innings of no-hit relief to shut down the Pirates. Doug Drabek pitched a complete-game five-hitter with 8 K's in a losing effort for the Bucs. The key play of the game (and the first of many outstanding defensive plays by the Reds OF in the NLCS) was turned in by Paul O'Neill in the sixth inning. The Reds had taken a 2-1 lead in the bottom of the fifth on a two-out double by O'Neill, which scored Herm Winningham with the go-ahead run. But the Pirates responded with back-to-back singles by Andy Van Slyke and Bobby Bonilla to lead off the sixth, putting runners on first and second with nobody out for NL MVP Barry Bonds. Bonds hit a fly ball to O'Neill in fairly deep RF, and O'Neill positioned himself and unleashed a laser to Chris Sabo to gun down Van Slyke at 3B.
