And this one belongs to the Reds! Fox Sports Ohio replays four games from the 1975 World Series this week, the four Reds victories to win the World Championship over the Boston Red Sox.

Curiously, FSO's truncated World Series repeat excludes Game 6, with Carlton Fisk's dramatic walk-off 12th inning home run, which many consider the greatest World Series game ever played.

But we'll see the four Reds wins Wednesday through Saturday, April 1-4.

Next week FSO resumes reruns from the 2019 season with six games against NL Central Division foes -- five against the Cubs and one with the Brewers -- Sunday, April 5 through Wednesday, April 8.

Spoiler alert: The Reds win every game.

Here's the 1975 World Series lineup this week:

Wednesday, April 1, 7 p.m.: 1975 World Series Game 2 from Oct. 12, 1975 from Fenway Park: Ken Griffey Jr. spoiled Boston's chance at a 2-0 series lead in Boston.

In the 10th, Ed Armbrister and catcher Carlton Fisk collided on a bunt before Joe Morgan's bases loaded line drive gave the Reds a 6-5 walk-off win.
