    Bobo Newsom pitched a three-hit shutout with 7 K's to get the win for the Tigers, who took a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven Series. The only hits for the Reds were a leadoff single by Frank McCormick in the second inning, a leadoff single by Mike McCormick in the fourth, and a leadoff single by Billy Werber in the sixth.

    25 years ago (1985), a 6-5 win at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.

    LP: Tom Niedenfuer (7-9)
    Sv: John Franco (12)
    HR: CIN - Eric Davis (8), Tony Perez (6), Dave Parker (34).

    Dave Parker homered in the ninth inning off Tom Niedenfuer in his final at-bat of the season to give the Reds a 6-5 lead. His total of 34 home runs was the most by a Red since George Foster hit 40 in 1978. Pete Rose did not play in this game. The Reds concluded the season in second place in the NL West with an 89-72 record, finishing 5.5 games behind the Dodgers.

    Pete Rose: 4204
    Ty Cobb: 4191

    15 years ago (1995), a 10-1 win in Game 3 of the NLDS at Riverfront Stadium vs. the Dodgers.

    Los Angeles

    WP: David Wells (1-0)
    LP: Hideo Nomo (0-1)
    HR: CIN - Ron Gant (1), Bret Boone (1), Mark Lewis (1).

    Mark Lewis hit a grand slam in the sixth inning, and Mike Jackson added a three-run double in the seventh to blow the game open and lead the Reds to a 3-0 sweep in the best-of-five series. The Reds would advance to the NLCS to face the NL East Champion Braves, who defeated the Rockie 3-1 in the other NLDS, with Game 1 to be played in Cincinnati on October 10.
