June 6 ,1958: Playing a NL game in San Fransisco for the first time, the Reds wipe out a 4-0 deficit with 5 runs in the 6th inning to beat the Giants, 5-4. The last three runs scored on a Jerry Lynch homer.
The first Cincinnati team to play in SF was the Red Stockings in 1869. Before Candlestick Park opened in 1960, the Giants played at Seals Stadium, a former minor league facility seating 23,000.Ã‚Â
