Cincinnati Reds 7 at New York Yankees 2, F -- On the heels of the high from Chris Chambliss' Royals-crushing home run in the ALCS to put the Yankees into the World Series, the Yanks crashed right into the steamrolling juggernaut that was the "Big Red Machine" from Cincinnati. With a lineup that boasted George Foster, Johnny Bench, Pete Rose, Joe Morgan, Tony Perez and Ken Griffey, the Reds only allowed the Yankees the lead once in the Series, for the first three innings of this Game 4. Johnny Bench homered twice to drive in four runs, adding to his Series-leading totals and earning him World Series MVP honors.
A spanking, by all accounts.
Ernie Harwell and Paul Carey do the play-by-play for WJR 760, the Great Voice of the Great Lakes. The first13 innings of a 14-inning affair, eventually won by Detroit, 4-2.
Harry Caray and Jack Buck bring you the play by play from Sportsman's Park in St. Louis. Complete game.
Soundcheck opens in the top of the 1st inning with the Reds' leadoff man, Leo Cardenas, at bat. Mets' legendary broadcast team of Lindsey Nelson, Bob Murphy, and Ralph Kiner. This is a wild one! My favorite part is how loudly into the game are the young people in the stands of the old Polo Grounds.
