Game 4 was really interesting with some weird events.
* Eric Davis and Billy Hatcher both getting hurt early and had to leave the game/go to the hospital.
* An amazing swing and miss broken bat by Glenn Braggs.
* A Reds bunt rally in the 8th to win.
* Great pitching matchup between Rijo and Stewart with the form retiring the last 20 batters he face.
I still remember how surprising it was that not only did the Reds win, but that they swept that great A's team that was on a 10-game post-season winning streak going into this Series.
I'd love to see the Reds be dominant in the NL again. I still remember the Big Red Machine of the 70s, and Red's fans have suffered mostly since that 1990 fall classic, with basically the exception of a blip in the early 2010s.
