Reds 3B Lew Riggs struck out in the eighth inning as a pinch-hitter for Whitney, and remained in the game at 3B. Of the 14 players who played for the NL, six were Cubs (Galan, Herman, Demaree, Hartnett, Curt Davis, and Lon Warneke), and four were Cardinals (Collins, Medwick, Durocher, and Dean). The other four were Whitney (Phillies), Riggs (Reds), and Carl Hubbell and Mel Ott (both Giants). The AL played 17 players, and every club was represented except for the Browns. The managers for the game were Joe McCarthy of the Yankees for the AL, and Charlie Grimm of the Cubs for the NL.

Trailing 3-1 heading into the top of the ninth inning, the Reds rallied for three runs off Steve Rogers to chase him from the game. Joe Morgan and Dan Driessen led off the inning with back-to-back singles, then Cesar Geronimo ripped a two-run triple to tie the game at 3-3. Dale Murray then came on in relief for Les Expos, and Mike Lum delivered a sacrifice fly to score Geronimo and give the Reds a 4-3 lead. Looking at Sparky's lineup, I guess anything really is possible when you have three players with .400 OBP's at the top of your order.

I was waiting for this thread to materialize yesterday and missed it. I wanted to highlight this game since this is the day my wife, born a Cardinals fan, was born. She's now a Reds fan after over 30 years living here, but I still like that Cincinnati & St. Louis played each other on the day she was born. And that she gave her dad at least one reason to be happy that day.

As an aside, I went to elementary school with two of Gus Bell's kids. I sent his daughter a note yesterday sharing this game with her since her dad went 3 for 4 in the game, scoring a run on Big Klu's homer. Also both Ed Bailey & Frank Robinson were hit by pitches in the game.
