Pretend ’77 Reds Lose Opener
Opening Day and the 1977 pretend Reds were hosting the always pretend Expos. Though Seaver took the mound, the Expos pulled off a minor miracle with the 5-3 win:
EXPOS 5-11-0, at REDS 3-8-2 (10 innings)
Runner-up for Game of the Day. Rogers and ‘Spos take 3-0 lead with mini-rallies off Tom Terrific. Cincy explodes for three in the 8th on Griffey and Bench doubles and jettison Rogers. Gary Kid Carter bashes 2-run homer in top of the 10th off Sarmiento for the game-winners.
W-Kerrigan L-Sarmiento HR-Carter
