On August 15, 1982 at Riverfront Stadium in Cincinnati, Roberge, pitching for Houston, entered a 7-3 game in the bottom of the ninth inning in relief of Mike LaCoss. There were two outs, but the bases were loaded and Hall of Famer Johnny Bench was at the plate. As he notes, Roberge fanned Bench to save the game for the Astros.
