    25 years ago (1984), a 4-0 loss at Riverfront vs. the Braves.

    Alex Treviņo c
    Rafael Ramirez ss
    Dale Murphy cf
    Brad Komminsk rf

    Joe Price p


    WP: Terry Forster (2-0)
    LP: Ted Power (2-2)
    HR: None.

    Len Barker and Terry Forster combined on a five-hitter for the Braves. Joe Price pitched a no-hitter through six innings, and pitched a one-hit shutout through eight innings. Price, Ted Power, and John Franco combined on a four-hitter in a losing effort for the Reds, as the Braves scored four runs in the ninth inning off Power and Franco to complete the rare five-game sweep. The only hits for the Braves were a leadoff double by Dale Murphy in the seventh inning, a leadoff single by Alex Treviņo in the ninth, a two-out two-run single by Randy G. Johnson in the ninth, and an RBI single by Terry Forster in the ninth.

    I was at this game. My family and I made our annual trip to see one game, and this one was it. I remember that it was the first time we ever sat in the green seats (along the 1B line), and that there was an obnoxious little kid with a Braves license plate sitting right in front of me, and he kept waving it in my face. I also remember being very unhappy with Reds manager Vern Rapp, because we had made our one trip to Cincinnati for the year, and Dave Parker wasn't in the lineup. (He did pinch-hit in the ninth inning.)

    Since I'm older than dirt and can remember the 50's Reds, it is fun for me to look at one of these old lineups and just 'free-associate', see what thoughts come into my mind first. So...

    Johnny Temple. I really liked this guy's years with the Reds. Tough competitor. After he had been shipped to the Houston Colt .45's, I won a contest in '63 on WWL radio in New Orleans by guessing his 'mystery voice'. Won a great all expenses paid trip to Houston for 2 for a weekend of baseball games and dinners and stuff.

    Vada Pinson. Robbie's buddy...always had a smile on his face.

    Jerry Lynch. Great pinch-hitter.

    Frank Robinson. Saw him play in his rookie season of '56 at Crosley. Fierce competitor. Would love to see him join the Reds organization today in some capacity.

    Gus Bell. Had many kids...we gave Cal Abrams for him and I think that was all! An unbelievable trade.

    Ed Bailey. From Strawberry Plains, Tennessee. Reds broadcasters at the time loved to mention this early and often. It is a Knoxville suburb, right?

    Frank J. Thomas. Never quite lived up to his reputation.

    Roy McMillan. As a little kid I fantasized that Roy was me and I was Roy. Shortstop was my position and I prided myself on my defense but, like him, I couldn't hit a lick. Only difference was that Roy did get better in his later years, I never did.

    Orlando Pena. I remember him but no memory comes out of the foggy, foggy mist.

    I'm glad you enjoy the old lineups from the past. I was born in 1970, but I enjoy reading about the Reds of the 50's and 60's.

    I wasn't born until 1963 so I wasn't around to see these guys in their prime. It's good to read the observations from someone who saw them first hand. That trip you won was really something. Pretty nice prize just to guess a players voice.

    Wow! A five game sweep at the hands of a pretty bad Braves team. I don't remember this but I'm sure I watched all of these games via WTBS.
    I would watch the Braves nearly every day during this time period. They were brutal. Those names are really familiar. Brad Komminsk was a much ballyhooed player when he came up but never lived up to his potential. Thinking back on it,Dale Murphy was amazing to put up the numbers he did with such a lousy lineup around him.
