    A fitting way for the 70's to end with the Reds and Pirates playing in the playoffs. They were the two dominant NL teams of the decade. This was the fourth time the Reds/Pirates played each other. The Reds won the other three times. I really don't remember much about this series now. Main thing I remember was that there was a very questionable call in game one that hurt the Reds and may have been the difference in the series.

    In his book/diary of the 1974 season, "Charlie Hustle," Pete Rose that after this game his son Petey told him that he (Petey) wanted to be traded to the Dodgers.

    IIRC, Phil Garner hit a line drive out to Dave Collins out in RF that I thought (and replays showed) that he made a diving catch on. But the umps called it a no-catch and Garner scored the tying run later in that inning. The Reds lost the first 2 games of that series in extra innings and that was when the NLCS was 5 games.

    My daughter played with Collins' daughter on a soccer team so I got to talk to him some on the sidelines over a couple seasons. I mentioned this play to him once and I thought he was going to punch me. He was still pretty hot about it 25 years later.

    It's about
    the ball,
    the bat,
    the mitt,
    the bases,
    and the fans

    I couldn't remember exactly what the play was. But as I recall now the replays did show that Collins caught the ball. I believe Frank Puli was the umpire. Of couse there was no replay then and wouldn't have been subject to replay even today. Turn those firs two games around and the Reds would have played the Orioles in the World Series. What a coincidence that would have been if the Reds/Orioles would have finshed the 70's like they begun it.

    Yea it was Frank Pulli and he blew it big time, especially considering a six man crew as opposed to the normal four man crew was working that game.
