April 29, 1984 - Crimson Tide

Game #272 - San Francisco Giants, 3 @ Cincinnati Reds, 5

In the top of the second little-used Fran Mullins popped a two-RBI homer to give San Fran the early lead.  But the Reds stormed back in the bottom of the inning.  Eddie Milner hit an RBI single and Dave Parker later plated two of his own to give the Reds the lead and eventually the win.  The biggest hiccup of the game came with an 82 minute rain delay thanks to a "Z" play.  Bob Owchinko pitched brilliantly after the clouds parted, going an important four innings of relief in the first game of a double header.

Game #273 - San Francisco Giants, 2 @ Cincinnati Reds, 3

Nailbiter time.  The Reds had scooted out to a two run lead in the fourth, including a rare RBI double from Johnnie LeMaster.  But Nick Esasky belted an Earl Weaver to give the Reds the victory in the bottom of the inning.  It was a shame, because spot starter Scott Garrelts pitched seven strong innings.
