Hall of Fame pitching matchup in Game 3

Welcome to our Retro Game Thread! With no 2020 games to cover, we’re instead turning our attention back in time to the three-time champion 1970s Oakland A’s. Click here to see the full schedule of games we’re following for the next couple weeks.

We’re in the 1973 World Series right now, and on the docket tonight is Game 3.

Here’s how to watch:

There are two links to choose from for this game. The first link is extra-choppy, especially at the beginning. The alternate link has a better version of the beginning, but only has 36 total minutes of video (but all the audio).

Oakland split the first two games at the Coliseum, winning Game 1 but then dropping a wild Game 2. Here are the starting lineups for Game 3, including a Hall of Fame pitching matchup, beginning with the visiting A’s:
