Mike Leake closes out his season with yet another domination of the Cubs. Reds win, 2-1.
The first edition of the Mississippi State (A&M then) basketball team, coached by T.H. Werner (the pimp in the top right of the photo) would start off the inaugural campaign in 1908 red hot, winning their first five games against heavy competition such as the Brownsville Athletic Club and the College of Memphis. Unfortunately, they would go into a tailspin, losing their last five games to teams like LSU, Tulane and the New Orleans YMCA. But, you know, the jerseys were cool! I wonder if back then people gathered 'round for the great jersey unveiling. Something tells me... probably not. (photo courtesy of MSU / MSU Media Relations, Media Guide 2010-11, pg. 177)
I don't have time for a long recap, but here are some highlights. Juan Francisco hit a home run over the moon deck and out of the stadium. It hit a tree outside, or it might have joined Adam...
The Reds continue to dominate the Cubs. God's in his heaven, and all's right with the world. Cincinnati wins, 8-2.
The Reds favorite whipping team comes to town, and the Reds whip them. Cincinnati beats Chicago, 8-2.
