August 27, 1975 Reds 6, Cubs 5 (87-44)
The Reds pulled out a close 6-5 win over the Cubs despite stranding fourteen men. They had fifteen hits (all singles) and six walks, yet they scored just six runs, which turned out to be just enough to pull of the win.
Ken Griffey was four for six with two RBIs and a run and Pete Rose was one for three with three walks and three runs. Starter Pat Darcy only made it through three innings before Sparky had to resort to the pen. Pedro Borbon effectively got a spot start as he pitched five innings and gave up only four hits and one run to improve to 8-4. Rawly Eastwick earned his seventeenth save by getting the final batter out in the ninth.
