Walters, a converted third baseman, also helped his cause with a home run in the eighth inning off Tigers reliever (and future Reds manager) Fred Hutchinson. It was Hutch's only career World Series appearance.

The only good game of this playoff series. John Candelaria nearly shut down the Reds as he struck 14 in this game. It was one of the few times this Reds team looked not so good at the plate. But they found away in the end like they had all season and pulled the game and series out.
