On this date in 2010: Relive the Jay Bruce walk-off HR that gave Reds NL Central title

Oh, to be in the playoffs again.

On this date in 2010, Reds outfielder Jay Bruce blasted a walk-off homer to clinch the NL Central division title. It was their 45th come-from-behind win that season.

The last time the Reds had clinched the division, Bruce was 7-years-old. Quite a bit has changed since.

Manager Dusty Baker has now taken four teams to the playoffs, guiding the Nationals to back-to-back NL East titles. Bruce was traded to the Mets last season, who sent him to the Indians this season.

The Astros, whom Bruce walked off, are now in the American League. The Reds have undergone a major rebuild.
