    Jack Billingham pitched a six-hit shutout to get the win, The Reds scored the only run of the game in the top of the ninth inning, as Joe Morgan led off with a single to RF, and stole second. After an intentional walk to Dan Driessen, Tony Perez singled to CF to score Morgan. A key play occurred in the bottom of the eighth inning, as Jack Billingham intentionally walked Willie Stargell with the bases empty and two outs. Billingham then induced Richie Zisk to dribble a ball in front of home plate, and Johnny Bench threw him out at first.

    HR: HOU - Jeff Kent (16), Ron Villone (1), Craig Biggio (11). CIN - Jason LaRue (15), Adam Dunn (27).

    The Reds scored the winning runs in the bottom of the tenth, as D'Angelo Jimenez led off with a single to RF, and advanced to second on a balk by Brad Lidge. After Wily Mo Peņa struck out, Adam Dunn hit a 453-foot game-ending homer with a sprained ligament in his left thumb. Two days later, Dunn would go on the disabled list for the remainder of the season, becoming the third Reds outfielder--along with Austin Kearns and Ken Griffey Jr.--to be lost with a season-ending injury.
