The other most memorable play from that post season was when Davis threw out Bonilla trying to stretch a triple in the playoffs. My girlfriend, now wife, thought I was a little over the top cheering in the car listening to the radio.
Awesone play! And also, another awesome and perhaps an even more crucial play was O'neill fairly late in game 2 throwing out Bonds (i think) at 3rd base after catching a fairly deep flyball to right with no outs and the Red's up only 2-1. I remember thinking that he had ZERO chance of throwing out Bonds, but he made one of the best throws I've ever seen to nail him at 3rd. The 1990 Reds turned in one of the "tightest" post seasons in MLB history that year. Many great defensive plays and virtually no mistakes. 1990 post season, what baseball clinic put on by the Reds, and WHAT A RIDE for the fans!
