I remember listening to this game. It was the 2nd time in the month the Reds had got no hit. This would be the last time the Reds were no hit until last year against Halladay.

Sparky picked an odd BRM lineup against Carlton: Concepcion batting third with Perez fifth and Bench sixth; Foster in centerfield; Bailey in leftfield; and Morgan not starting.

I did not know this until I started researching this season, but George Foster was Sparky's backup CF. Except for two games in May in which Joel Youngblood started in CF, the only players to start a game in CF for the Reds in 1976 were Cesar Geronimo (125) and George Foster (35). Foster was also usually Sparky's first choice to back up Ken Griffey in RF. Foster started 137 games for the Reds that year (79 LF, 35 CF, 23 RF). The Reds' top backup OF's that year were the lefty-hitting Mike Lum and Dan Driessen, and the righty-hitting Bob Bailey, and Sparky wanted them in LF if possible. So with a tough lefty like Steve Carlton on the mound for Philadelphia, I would guess that Sparky decided to give Geronimo a day off, and Foster moved to CF.

As for Joe Morgan not starting, I suspect that he was nursing a minor injury, as this was the sixth of seven consecutive games that Doug Flynn started at 2B--and they were against top competition in the Phillies (5 games) and Dodgers (2 games).

As for Concepcion batting third, I don't know. Davey didn't have a bad year in '76, but it seems a little strange. Foster had a breakout season, hitting .306/.364/.530/.894 with a club-leading 29 HR's and a NL-leading 121 RBI's, so he would have been the logical choice to hit third with Morgan out. Perez had slipped somewhat at the plate, and Bench had the worst year of his career up to that point (he out-OPS'ed Concepcion by only five points). Bailey provided some serious thunder from the right side off the bench, though (.884 OPS). Perhaps a more logical lineup with that personnel might have been:

Rose 3b
Griffey rf
Foster cf
Perez 1b
Bench c (JB had good success vs. Carlton in his career)
Bailey lf
Concepcion ss
Flynn 2b

Was this the beaning that resulted in Zimmer having a metal plate in his head? If it was I didn't realize it was against the Reds.

No, he suffered a fractured cheekbone in this game. The beaning he took in 1953 while playing minor-league ball for St. Paul was probably fresh in everyone's mind though.
