    20 years ago (1990), an 8-4 11-inning win on Opening Night at the Astrodome in Houston.

    Cincinnati
    Chris Sabo 3b
    Billy Hatcher lf
    Barry Larkin ss

    HR: CIN - Mariano Duncan (1).

    Barry Larkin ripped a three-run triple in the top of the eleventh inning to break a 4-4 tie, and Eric Davis followed with an RBI single to give Randy Myers a win in his Reds debut. The "Nasty Boys" trio of Myers, Rob Dibble, and Norm Charlton combined for six innings of five-hit shutout relief with 10 K's. The Reds opened the season on the road due to the lockout which delayed the start of the season.

    Record: 1-0, tied for first place in NL West

    I was at that game. I remember the Reds fell behind by a fairly large margin (six runs I think) but battled back and won the game. IIRC the winning run scored on a throwing error on a bunt attempt. I was pumped to see Griffey hit his first homer with the Reds.

    I wonder if a pitcher has ever had a better MLB debut than what Simpson did? That's really amazing!

    I had forgotten that there was a lockout that forced a delayed start to the season. There were so many lockouts/strikes during the 70's,80's and 90's you forget about some of them.
