September 12, 1978: Champ Summers becomes the first Reds player to reach the red seats in RF at Riverfront Stadium inÃ‚Â a 4-3 win over the Astros. The pitching victim was Mark Lemongello.
This was one of only 5 home runs Summers hit in three seasons with the Reds, and was his only homer with the club in 1978.
