Bill Landrum walked Bo Diaz with the bases loaded and two outs in the bottom of the 10th inning this afternoon to hand the Cincinnati Reds a 5-4 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates. Landrum, 0-1, allowed a two-out single to Paul O'Neill, then walked Todd Benzinger and Rolando Roomes to bring up Diaz, hitting just .150 with one RBI. Diaz took four straight balls from Landrum to force in O'Neill with the winning run and give John Franco, 1-0, his first win since last Aug. 30. Reds starter Jose Rijo, who had won four straight, allowed just two hits over the first six innings and singled home the run that put the Reds up 4-3 in the fourth.

They consulted historical societies, viewed archival footage of Jerry Lee Lewis concerts, pored over old photos and did some bar hopping. A lot of bar hopping. "We became known on location as 'The Partymasters,' " said Jacqui, laughing at the memory of the pre-production month she and husband Bill spent in Memphis cruising juke joints, cowboy clubs and honky-tonks, searching for dancing extras with authentic period style.

Brave President Stan Kasten said he viewed the fate of the Pirates as a real "tragedy." He wasn't referring to their defeat in Game 7 but to their small-market attempt to survive in baseball's economic environment. Bobby Bonilla left as a free agent last winter, John Smiley was traded in the spring and Bill Landrum was released on the eve of the season in economic decisions. Now Barry Bonds and Doug Drabek are free agents.
