Reds' last collapse fostered history



At least in the game 74 years ago in which the Reds blew a nine-run lead, there was some redeeming historical value: It was the Reds' and Cubs' last game of the season (Sept. 28, 1930), and Cubs hitter Hack Wilson drove in two runs during his team's comeback, giving him 190 RBI for the year, still a major-league record. The Reds had scored nine runs in the second inning and were still ahead 11-8 in the top of the eighth when the dam broke. The Cubs scored five times in the bottom of the eighth and won 13-11. The game was played in Chicago.
