I will never forget that day, my mom was so nervous she couldn't watch the game on TV.
Bench hit the HR to tie, to RF, which was so rare for him (what??? The Reds were behind in that series?), and Hal McRae was at the plate when Foster scored that winning run on a wild pitch from Moose.
I remember it like it was yesterday.
Those Reds didn't give up, and I don't think this group does, either.
