Willoughby then intentionally walked Pete Rose to load the bases and set up a force play situation.

Dwight Evans tied the game with a two- run triple, then Rick Burleson put the Sox ahead by doubling in Evans off Reds starter Fred Norman.

Joe Morgan then popped out to first on Tiant's 1. Thursday, October 1. Riverfront Stadium in Cincinnati, Ohio.
