The 2012 Cincinnati Reds and the 5 Best Regular Season Comebacks of All-Time

Your NL Central champion Cincinnati Reds

The Cincinnati Reds have surged. They’re sitting pretty with a record of 92-61, 10 games atop the challenger Cardinals in the NL Central and just a half-game off the best record in baseball.

With their win this past Saturday, they’ve clinched their playoff spot. It’s an envious position for any team to find itself in, but particularly this team, as at the All-Star Break, the Reds were still behind the Pittsburgh Pirates and held only a tenuous grasp on even a wild-card slot. But the Reds triumphed, playing through one of the greatest second-half surges of all-time.

In honor of this Reds team’s late-season success, we investigate the other top five all-time end-of-season winning streaks. Like this Reds team, each of these best-ever finishes famously powered teams to a regular-season championship on the crest of a season-ending wave of wins.
