    For comparison's sake, that is about losing three in a row to the Nats this weekend. The Cubs were not a good club, esp. the pitching.

    And he moved up a spot as a reward. The climate at Crosley Field evidently agreed with Gene.

    Must have been a really bad call for Johnny to get thrown out. He was about as gentle as they come for managers.

    This was Pete Rose's first game in his return to Cincinnati as player-manager. In his first at-bat, Rose singled to left-center, where Cubs CF Bob Dernier misplayed the ball for a two-base error, and Rose went full speed into third base with a head-first slide that caused the entire stadium of 35,038 to erupt. Mario Soto pitched a complete-game five-hitter to get the win for the Reds.

    It was learned later that Pete had slipped Dernier a $100 bill to throw that play

    That still is one of my all time favorite moments in Reds history that I have observed. It was an electric moment and Rose brought Reds baseball back to life.
