    45 years ago (1965), the Reds swept a doubleheader at Crosley Field vs. the Mets--winning the opener 9-4, and the nightcap 10-8.

    First Game
    New York Mets
    Bobby Klaus 3b
    Johnny Lewis rf
    Ron Hunt 2b
    Ed Kranepool 1b
    Joe Christopher lf
    Ron Swoboda cf
    Roy McMillan ss
    Chris Cannizzaro c
    Jack Fisher p

    Cincinnati
    Pete Rose 2b
    Tommy Harper lf
    Vada Pinson cf
    Frank Robinson rf
    Gordy Coleman 1b
    Deron Johnson 3b
    Johnny Edwards c
    Leo Cardenas ss
    Jim Maloney p


    WP: Jim Maloney (3-0)
    LP: Jack Fisher (0-2)
    HR: NY - Johnny Lewis (1). CIN - Art Shamsky (1).

    In Game 1, Jim Maloney pitched a complete-game eight-hitter with 9 K's to get the win for the Reds. Art Shamsky hit his first major-league home run in the fifth inning as a pinch-hitter for Frank Robinson. Johnny Edwards was ejected in the ninth inning by home plate umpire Frank Secory for arguing that Joe Christopher's bunt single was foul.



    Second Game
    New York Mets
    Cleon Jones rf
    Bobby Klaus 3b
    Ron Hunt 2b
    Joe Christopher lf
    Ron Swoboda cf
    Ed Kranepool 1b
    Hawk Taylor c
    Roy McMillan ss
    Galen Cisco p

    Cincinnati
    Pete Rose 2b
    Tommy Harper lf
    Vada Pinson cf
    Frank Robinson rf
    Gordy Coleman 1b
    Deron Johnson 3b
    Don Pavletich c
    Leo Cardenas ss
    Joe Nuxhall p


    WP: Bill Henry (2-0)
    LP: Jack Fisher (0-3)
    Sv: Billy McCool (3)
    HR: NY - Hawk Taylor (1). CIN - Don Pavletich (1), Gordy Coleman (3), Johnny Edwards (4).

    In Game 2, Jack Fisher--who had been the starter and loser for the Mets in the opener--picked up the loss in the nightcap when he served up a go-ahead two-run homer to Gordy Coleman in the seventh inning to give the Reds a 9-8 lead.

    The Reds blew a six-run lead in the ninth inning, as the Cardinals scored seven runs in the ninth off David Weathers and Danny Graves. Losing pitcher Danny Graves entered the game with two on, two outs and a 9-5 lead, and promptly served up a three-run homer to Jim Edmonds to cut the lead to 9-8. Mark Grudzielanek then reached on an error by Sean Casey, and Graves then gave up a two-run homer to John Mabry.

    I almost became ill while rereading the box score for today's thread, and I realized what game this was.

    That 1980 starting line-up defines "Sunday special". Ick. Was that game on a Sunday? It had to be.

    Wish the Reds had somebody like Sam Mejias (his line as a red .283/.318/.358/.676) in CF right now.

    Friday night. The first game of a four-game weekend series against the Cubs.

    It looked like the Reds were starting the jayvees against the Cubs. I'm not certain, but I think Dan Driessen, George Foster, and Dave Collins were all nursing injuries--this was Harry Spilman's fifth consecutive start at 1B, Hector Cruz's third straight start in LF, and the ninth straight start for the platoon of Cesar Geronimo and Sam Mejias in CF. Additionally, Johnny Bench had started the last four games before this one, and John McNamara made it a point that season that Bench would catch no more than four games in a row before getting a day off. (Bench started behind the plate in five consecutive games only one time the entire season, and that was during a stretch that saw two off days mixed in). Also, Ron Oester had made only one start this season at this point, so Junior Kennedy was still the de facto starting 2B.

    Yuck! I remember this one too. Just an awful loss that summed up this team. If Graves downfall hadn't already started this certainly accelerated it.

    Thanks. I was 9 during the summer of 1980, and enjoyed that team. But had mercifully blocked out all memories of that line-up.

    It is funny we are talking about the 1980 lineups because I almost posted the other day about the lineup for 4/30/80.

    Cincinnati
    Ken Griffey rf
    Cesar Geronimo cf
    Dave Concepcion ss
    Ray Knight 3b
    Harry Spilman 1b
    Johnny Bench c
    Hector Cruz lf
    Junior Kennedy 2b
    Tom Seaver p

    The lineup is not as bizarre as 5/2/10 but it isn't a real pretty lineup. I wonder what Johnny Mac was thinking in those days?

    I wonder how JB felt about hitting behind Harry Spilman??
