Cincinnati Reds at Boston Red Sox
Just when it looked like the Red Sox would break the curse and win their first World Series since 1918, it wasn't meant to be. Boston took a 3-0 lead in the third inning, only to see it evaporate. Tony Perez hit a two-run homer in the sixth, the Reds then tied it in the seventh, and Joe Morgan's bloop single in the ninth scored the eventual winning run. Reliever Will McEnaney set Boston down in order in the home half of the ninth as Cincinnati won its first world title in 35 years.
