1976 NLCS Gm3: Foster, Bench homers tie game for Reds

The 1976 World Series matched the defending champions Cincinnati Reds of the National League against the New York Yankees of the American League, with the Reds sweeping the Series to repeat, avenging their 1939 and 1961 World Series losses to the Yankees in the process. The 1976 Reds became—and remain – the only team to sweep an entire multi-tier postseason, one of the crowning achievements of the franchise's Big Red Machine era. The Reds are also the last National League team to win back-to-back World Series. It also marked the second time that the Yankees were swept in a World Series—the Los Angeles Dodgers were the first to sweep them in 1963.
