Here are four times the Reds came off the mat last at-bat to beat the Indians. 

2006: Adam Dunn’s walk-off grand slam 

Is there any more memorable moment for the Reds since their last World Series title? 

The Indians dominated this game until the last two innings. Dunn finished Cincinnati’s offensive awakening with a bases loaded bullet that still gives Reds fans chills today. 

2008: Dunn does it again with 3-run moonshot 

While the Big Donkey’s epic ‘06 game-winner was a laser beam that barely clear the right field wall, he hit a no-doubter to stun Cleveland two years later. 

2017: Hamilton’s mad dashes do in Indians 

Anyone who disagrees with the notion Billy Hamilton can change a game with his speed just needs to watch this half inning. After beating out a double-play ball that would have ended the game, he scored the go-ahead run from first base on a single. 

Who does that? 

2018: Joey Votto wears the laurel of hero

The Reds looked dead in the water entering the ninth inning down 4-0 Tuesday night. 

They were still in that hole with two outs on the scoreboard, but Jim Riggleman’s team wasn’t done. 

Joey Votto had the biggest blow, a three-run double that put Cincinnati on top for good. 

Not only did it energize the southern half of the state, it was also a reminder everything tends to come full circle.
