Re: Greatest Games in Red History
Within that time range I offer the following:
Game 3 of the 1975 NLCS: The Prates John Candelaria fans 14 Reds, but a two run HR by Pete Rose ties the game in the 8th, and the Reds go on to win the game, and the NL pennant, in extra innings, 5-3.
Game 2 of the 1975 World Series: The Reds are one out away from being down 0 games to 2 in the World Series to the Red Sox before Dave Concepcion singles in Johnny Bench to tie the game. Concepcion then steals second base and scores on a double by Ken Griffey as the Reds win 3-2, with Rawly Eastwick getting the save, in the process getting Bernie Carbo out-Carbo would do better against Eastwick in game 6.
Game 3 of the 1976 NLCS: Down 6-4 to the Phillies, the Reds rally in the ninth on back-to-back HRs by George Foster and Johnny Bench to tie the game 6-6. The Reds then load the bases before an infield single by Ken Griffey, which former Red Bobby Tolan mishandled, plates Dave Concepcion with the winning run, sending the Reds back to the World Series.
Game 2 of the 1976 World Series: Tony Perez breaks a 3-3 tie in the ninth with a RBI single to beat the Yankees 4-3.
Game 4 of the 1976 World Series: Johnny Bench hits two HRs, including one in the ninth, as the Reds win 7-2 to complete a sweep of the Yankees.
