    This Date In Reds History (10/7/10): Past Lineups--1940 World Series & 1975 NLCS

    70 years ago (1940), a 4-0 win in Game 6 of the World Series at Crosley Field vs. the Tigers.

    HR: CIN - Bucky Walters (1).

    Bucky Walters pitched a five-hit shutout to get the win for the Reds, and even the best-of-seven Series at 3-3. Walters, a converted third baseman, also helped his cause with a home run in the eighth inning off Tigers reliever (and future Reds manager) Fred Hutchinson. It was Hutch's only career World Series appearance.

    35 years ago (1975), a 5-3 10-inning win in Game 3 of the NLCS at Three Rivers Stadium in Pittsburgh.

    Cincinnati
    Pete Rose 3b
    Joe Morgan 2b
    Johnny Bench c
    Tony Perez 1b
    George Foster lf
    Dave Concepcion ss
    Ken Griffey rf

    Richie Hebner 3b
    Al Oliver cf
    Willie Stargell 1b
    Dave Parker rf
    Richie Zisk lf
    Manny Sanguillen c
    Frank Taveras ss
    John Candelaria p


    WP: Rawly Eastwick (1-0)
    LP: Ramon G. Hernandez (0-1)
    Sv: Pedro Borbon (1)
    HR: CIN - Dave Concepcion (1), Pete Rose (1). PIT - Al Oliver (1).

    Ed Armbrister's sacrifice fly and Joe Morgan's RBI double gave the Reds a 5-3 lead in the tenth inning, and Pedro Borbon pitched a perfect inning to nail down the save and lead the Reds to a 3-0 sweep in the best-of-five series. The Reds would advance to the World Series to face the AL Champion Red Sox, who swept the Athletics 3-0 in the ALCS, with Game 1 to be played in Boston on October 11.

    The only good game of this playoff series. John Candelaria nearly shut down the Reds as he struck 14 in this game. It was one of the few times this Reds team looked not so good at the plate. But they found away in the end like they had all season and pulled the game and series out.
