Game 6 – 1978 Tournament Replay Reds vs Brewers

Game 6 in Milwaukee features starters Tom Hume (8-11 4.14 Grade 5) for the Reds versus ace lefty Mike Caldwell (22-9 2.36 Grade 19) for the Brewers.

Just like Game 5 the Brewers would bat around in the first. Just like Game 5 they would score 5 runs. Larry Hisle, Cecil Cooper, and Sixto Lezcano with a 3-run shot to center with the big hits. The Brewers would go onto add 3 run innings in the 5th and 8th innings. Ben Oglivie with a homer to right in the 8th.

The Reds could muster no offense against Caldwell and only managed 2 hits in the complete game shut out for the left. Brewers win the series 4-2 and face the Yankees in what should be a great, great series.

Final Score: Brewers 12, Reds 0

WP: Mike Caldwell (4-0)
