June 28, 1970 ... For the third time in their careers, rightfielder Pete Rose and centerfielder Bobby Tolan combine to start the game with back-to-back homers for Cincinnati. Thirdbaseman Tony Perez hits his 27th homer of the season off Don Wilson in the top of the 9th for a 3–2 Reds win. Reds' righty Clay Carroll picks up his fifth win after relieving starter Gary Nolan.
Todays' win moves Cincinnati's record to 52-21, 9 games ahead of the runner-up Los Angeles Dodgers in the NL West.
This game marks the final road game before the Reds come home to play in the brand new Riverfront Stadium for the first time. The Reds will host the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday night, June 30th.
