    This Date In Reds History (10/12/10): Past Lineups--1975 World Series & 1990 NLCS

    WP: Rawly Eastwick (1-0)
    LP: Dick Drago (0-1)
    HR: None.

    Trailing 2-1 heading into the ninth inning, the Reds rallied for two runs for a come-from-behind win to even the best-of-seven Series at 1-1. Johhny Bench led off the ninth with a double to RF off Bill Lee. Red Sox manager Darrell Johnson went to his bullpen, calling upon righthander Dick Drago. Tony Perez grounded out to SS, advancing Bench to third. George Foster then flied out to LF, but it was too shallow for Bench to try to score, so the Reds were down to their final out. But Dave Concepcion delivered with an infield single, scoring Bench and tying the game at 2-2. After Concepcion stole second base, Ken Griffey doubled to score Davey with the go-ahead run.

    Sv: Randy Myers (3)
    HR: None.

    Danny Jackson, Norm Charlton, and Randy Myers combined on a one-hitter as the Reds clinched the best-of-seven series 4-2 and advanced to the World Series for the first time since 1976. The only hit for the Pirates was an RBI double by Carmelo Martinez with one out in the fifth inning to tie the game at 1-1. The Reds took the lead in the seventh as Ron Oester led off with a single, and one out later advanced to third on a single by Billy Hatcher. Pinch-hitter Luis Quiñones, batting for RF Paul O'Neill, then delivered an RBI single to score Oester with the go-ahead run. The Reds OF delivered one more magical play in the top of the ninth inning. With one out, Barry Bonds walked. Carmelo Martinez, who had the Pirates' only hit, then hit a long drive to deep right field. But Glenn Braggs, who had replaced O'Neill in RF, jumped above the wall and took a possible home run away. Randy Myers then struck out Don Slaught for the series-clinching out. The Reds would advance to the World Series to face the AL Champion Athletics, who swept the Red Sox 4-0 in the ALCS, with Game 1 to be played in Cincinnati on October 16.
