It hadn't been accomplished in many decades -- a National League team winning back-to-back World Series championships, that is. But in 1976, Sparky Anderson's star-laden Cincinnati Reds did just that, taking their second straight world crown by defeating the New York Yankees, four games to none.

Led by catcher Johnny Bench, who was Series MVP, the Reds knocked off the Yanks by scores of 5-1, 4-3, 6-2, and 7-2. And this came on the heels of Cincinnati's three-game sweep over the Philadelphia Phillies in the NLCS. 7 wins and 0 losses for the Reds in the '76 post-season!

Cincy batted at a .333 clip for the four games of the '76 World Series; while New York could muster just a .222 team batting mark. The club ERA stats were equally one-sided in favor of the Reds -- Cincy's ERA was an excellent 2.00; the Yanks' pitchers amassed a poor 5.45 mark.

28-year-old, 9-year veteran Johnny Lee Bench was on fire during the '76 Series, hitting .533 (8-for-15), with 2 home runs and 6 runs-batted-in. Bench also had 1 double, 1 triple, and 4 runs scored. He struck out just 1 time in the 4 contests. This World Series performance helped to make up for Johnny's poor 1976 regular season (.234 / 16 HR / 74 RBI).

Other top hitters in the '76 Series included George Foster (.429 batting average), Dave Concepcion (.357), Dan Driessen (.357), Joe Morgan (.333), Tony Perez (.313), and Cesar Geronimo (.308).

On the losing Yankees' side, Thurman Munson was a hot hitter, batting .529, with nine hits in the four games. Future Reds' manager Lou Piniella hit .333 for the Yanks during the Series.

Dan Driessen of the Reds had the distinction of becoming the very first National Leaguer to be used as a Designated Hitter in the World Series.
