  • 1972 - The Oakland Athletics win, 2 - 1, over the Cincinnati Reds as Joe Rudi clouts a home run and makes a game-saving catch to back up a great work by pitcher Catfish Hunter. Before a record Cincinnati crowd of 53,224, the Athletics take a 2-0 World Series advantage as the scene shifts to Oakland.
  • 1988 - With two outs in the bottom of the 9th inning, Kirk Gibson hits a two-run, pinch-home run off Dennis Eckersley to give the Los Angeles Dodgers a 5 - 4 victory over the Oakland Athletics in Game 1 of the World Series. In his only plate appearance in the Series, Gibson, who did not start because of a strained left knee, limps around the bases as the Dodgers win one of the most dramatic games in Series history. Following the 2010 season, a panel of experts at the MLB Network will vote this game the 10th greatest game of the past fifty years.
