This game was suspended by rain with two outs in the top of the sixth inning and the Reds leading 3-2. It was not an official game because the Reds had scored the go-ahead run in the top of the sixth. Since the Reds had no more trips to Montreal this season, the game was resumed at Riverfront Stadium in Cincinnati (with the Reds as visitors) on July 24 prior to the regularly-scheduled game. Dave Parker hit a pinch-hit grand slam in the top of the eighth inning, and Eric Davis added a three-run homer in the ninth to break the game open.

This is the day that RedsZone went into total meltdown mode, as prior to the game the Reds traded SS Felipe Lopez, RF Austin Kearns, and RHP Ryan Wagner to the Nationals for RHP Gary Majewski, LHP Bill Bray, SS Royce Clayton, INF Brendan Harris, and RHP Daryl Thompson. I was at the game, but I hadn't heard about the trade until the usher asked me what I though about the trade. I told him that I hadn't heard about any trade, so he told me about it. We all knew the bullpen was weak, but that was a steep price to pay. Five years later, Bray appears to be the only decent player in the deal.

I call "Advantage: Reds" in a war of attrition.

I'm lucky enough to have a copy of this game on DVD. I pulled it out and watched it Monday night. It's probably my favorite all star game to watch. So many great players. The NL lead off with Willie Mays followed by Hank Aaron. Not too shabby. Bench's home run was a real blast. It landed in the upper deck in right center field. I saw an interview with him about this game on the MLB Network and he said it was probably the longest home run of his career. If not for Reggie Jackson, his homer would have been most remembered in this game. According to Curt Gowdy, Aaron's HR was his first XBH in all star play. He had 10 singles in his previous all star appearances. All the home runs were blasts. Not a cheapy in the bunch. Killebrew's was a shot too. A line drive type home run that went way back into the left field bleachers. Both starting went 3 innings each. It's been a long time since we have seen that in an all star game.
