The Cincinnati Reds scored seven runs in the ninth inning to stun the Cleveland Indians on Tuesday night.
So what else is new?
The Ohio River team has made a habit of rallying in the ninth inning against the squad from Lake Erie.
Here are four times the Reds came off the mat last at-bat to beat the Indians.
Is there any more memorable moment for the Reds since their last World Series title?
The Indians dominated this game until the last two innings. Dunn finished Cincinnati’s offensive awakening with a bases loaded bullet that still gives Reds fans chills today.
2008: Dunn does it again with 3-run moonshot
While the Big Donkey’s epic ‘06 game-winner was a laser beam that barely clear the right field wall, he hit a no-doubter to stun Cleveland two years later.
Anyone who disagrees with the notion Billy Hamilton can change a game with his speed just needs to watch this half inning. After beating out a double-play ball that would have ended the game, he scored the go-ahead run from first base on a single.
Who does that?
2018: Joey Votto wears the laurel of hero
The Reds looked dead in the water entering the ninth inning down 4-0 Tuesday night.
They were still in that hole with two outs on the scoreboard, but Jim Riggleman’s team wasn’t done.
Joey Votto had the biggest blow, a three-run double that put Cincinnati on top for good.
Not only did it energize the southern half of the state, it was also a reminder everything tends to come full circle.
