  • 1973 - The Mets hold Oakland to four hits in the World Series opener, but three of those hits come in the two-run 3rd inning as Oakland wins, 2-1.
  • 2006 - The Tigers defeat Oakland, 3-0, in Game 3 of the ALCS, with Kenny Rogers picking up the win. In the game, Mark Kiger makes his major league debut as a defensive substitute for the A's, becoming the first player to make his debut in the postseason since Bug Holliday in 1885. Kiger will never play a regular-season game during his short major league career.
