Game 8: at STL
Reds lineup vs. Cardinals
*This will be Derrick Robinson’s first big league starting lineup appearance.
*The Elias Sports Bureau provided this nugget today:
The Reds scored nine runs in the top of the ninth inning to break a 4-4 tie, pinning a 13-4 loss on the Cardinals at Busch Stadium. Cincinnati became only the fifth team in major-league history to score nine or more runs in the ninth inning in a game that was tied entering that frame. The others were the 2002 Mets (at Atlanta), 2001 Tigers (at Texas), 1950 Braves (at Pittsburgh) and 1939 Indians (at Philadelphia).
