Game 6 of the 1975 World Series would go down as one of the greatest games not only in World Series and post-season history, but baseball history as well.
In the bottom of the eighth, Pedro Borbon was on the mound, with Rawly Eastwick warming up in the Reds' bullpen. Borbon gave up a single to Fred Lynn, and then walked Rico Petrocelli. Eastwick was brought in to pitch, and proceeded to strike out Dwight Evans and retire Rick Burleson on a line-out to left. Eastwick looked on his way out of the inning. Bernie Carbo, a former first-round pick of the Reds, who had a pinch-hit home run in Game 3, was called on to bat for Roger Moret. Carbo looked hopelessly overmatched by Eastwick, and on a 22 pitch, fouled off a pitch on a swing that was described as having "all the athletic grace of a suburbanite raking leaves." On the next pitch, however, Carbo tied the game with a three-run home run just to the left of dead center field.
