  Game summaries

  Game 1

Saturday, October 9, 1976 at Veterans Stadium in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Team 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E
Cincinnati 0 0 1 0 0 2 0 3 0 6 10 0
Philadelphia 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 3 6 1
WP: Don Gullett (1–0)   LP: Steve Carlton (0–1)
Home runs:
CIN: George Foster (1)
PHI: None

Reds starter Don Gullett held the Phils to two hits in eight strong innings and helped his own cause with an RBI single in the sixth and a two-run double in the eighth. George Foster added a solo homer.

  Game 2

Sunday, October 10, 1976 at Veterans Stadium in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Team 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E
Cincinnati 0 0 0 0 0 4 2 0 0 6 6 0
Philadelphia 0 1 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 2 10 1
WP: Pat Zachry (1–0)   LP: Jim Lonborg (0–1)   Sv: Pedro Borbón (1)
Home runs:
CIN: None
PHI: Greg Luzinski (1)

Buoyed by an RBI single by Bob Boone and a solo homer by Greg Luzinski, Phils starter Jim Lonborg no-hit the Reds until the sixth. After giving up an RBI single to Pete Rose, Lonborg was inexplicably removed from the game by manager Danny Ozark. Two more runs came across on an error by first baseman Dick Allen on a ball hit by Tony Pérez, and those would turn out to be the deciding runs as the Reds cruised to their second victory and an almost insurmountable 2–0 lead going back to Cincinnati.

  Game 3

Tuesday, October 12, 1976 at Riverfront Stadium in Cincinnati, Ohio

Team 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E
Philadelphia 0 0 0 1 0 0 2 2 1 6 11 0
Cincinnati 0 0 0 0 0 0 4 0 3 7 9 2
WP: Rawly Eastwick (1–0)   LP: Gene Garber (0–1)
Home runs:
PHI: None
CIN: George Foster (2), Johnny Bench (1)

Once again, the Phillies got a strong starting pitching performance that went for naught. Jim Kaat held the Reds to one hit after six innings. Meanwhile, his teammates provided him a 3–0 lead via a consecutive doubles in the fourth by Mike Schmidt and Greg Luzinski and RBI doubles by Garry Maddox and Schmidt in the seventh.

But, in the bottom of the seventh, Kaat began to lose it. Ken Griffey led off with a single, Joe Morgan walked, and Tony Perez singled home Griffey. George Foster followed with a sacrifice fly. After a walk to Johnny Bench, Phils reliever Ron Reed retired Dave Concepción, but then surrendered a two-run triple to César Gerónimo to put the Reds ahead 4–3.

The Reds then sent Rawly Eastwick in to close the game out in the eighth, but his troubles from Game 1 continued. Jay Johnstone led off with a double and went to third on an Eastwick wild pitch as Bob Boone walked. Larry Bowa doubled in Johnstone and Dave Cash hit a sacrifice fly to give the Phils the lead back at 5–4. The Phils added another run in the top of the ninth on an RBI triple by Johnstone to make it 6–4.

With Reed still on the mound for the ninth, Foster and Bench hit back-to-back solo homers to tie the game. Gene Garber relieved and promptly gave up a single to Concepcion. Tommy Underwood came on to surrender a walk to Geronimo. Pinch-hitter Ed Armbrister sacrificed the runners to second and third. Underwood then intentionally walked Pete Rose to load the bases. With the infield drawn in, Griffey hit a high bouncer over the head of Bobby Tolan playing first. Tolan got to the ball, but Griffey beat out the hit and Concepción scored to send the Reds to their second straight World Series.

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
