    My 1977 inside pitch Reds Replay

    After my 1970 Replay I said I wouldn't post the next season I played. But saw where a handful on here enjoyed following along on the 70 one. So I decided to post for this 1977 Replay.

    Rose
    Bench
    Driessen
    Morgan
    Concepcion
    Foster
    Geronimo
    Griffey

    The Bench

    Plummer
    Knight
    Flynn
    Lum
    Armbrister
    Summers
    Bailey

    Rotation to begin the season

    Fryman
    Billingham
    Norman
    Acala
    Zachary

    Bullpen

    Borbon
    Murray
    Eastwick

    Just please don’t trade Mike Caldwell so they can bring up Joe Horner.

    Oh man, Hoerner was about the worst pitcher I have ever seen as a Red. He had been an OK pitcher in the past but he was cooked when the Reds brought him in during tis season. He was actually a pitching coach at AAA while pitching too at this time.

    It's going to be a huge challenge to win the division. I don't see it happening.
    70 72 73 74 75 76. I managed to win the division every year. Only made 2 world series 73 lost and 74 won. But I doubt I have a chance in this 77 season.

    The funny things you remember; is that the real game was an NBC Game of the Week and I was shocked that the Reds lost. How could they lose to the lowly Padres!

    Here's the real game in 1977. Joe Niekro went 3 2/3 innings for the save. The starting pitcher for the Astros, Doug Konieczny, was not a very good pitcher at all. In fact this was his last MLB win and was out of the big leagues after April 30. He finished with a 7-18 MLB record with a 4.93 ERA.

    Re: My 1977 inside pitch Reds Replay

    Game 6 Real score Astros 4 Reds 3
    Replay score Astros 9 Reds 2

    Richard wins it. CG 4 hits 2 runs 10 K 3 BB
    Zachry takes the loss.

    Rose 1 for 4 2B SB 2 RS

    Joe Ferguson hits for the cycle. 4 for 4 2B 3B HR 7 RBIs

    I checked and Ferguson did have 3 triples in 1977.
    My 3rd cycle 1976 Morgan had one.
    1975 Pitcher Larry Christensen had one and now Ferguson.
    Christensen was a good hitter and did have a triple in the real year he had the cycle against me.

    Reds fall to 2 and 4

    Andujar wins it. Niekro Saves it. Borbon takes the loss.

    Cabell 1 for 4 solo HR

    Re: My 1977 inside pitch Reds Replay

    Game 8 Real score Reds 9 Padres 5
    Replay score Padres 9 Reds 5.

    Reds score 5 first inning runs on 5 hits 3 walks and chase Strom after 2/3 of a inning. But Freisleben, Tomlin and Metzger combine for 8 1/3 4 hit shutout innings.

    Freisleben wins it. Murray takes the loss

    Rose 3 for 4 RS BB RBI

    Tenace 2 for 3 HR HBP BB 2 RBIs
    But the big blow was a pinch hit bases loaded triple by Gene Richards.

    Reds fall to 2 and 6 and into last place in the west.
