Box Score of the Week (World Series edition)

In my final BOTW until next spring, it's only apropos that I feature a World Series game.

With that in mind, let's look at Game 3 of the 1989 Fall Classic pitting the Oakland Athletics and the San Francisco Giants.


The 1989 Giants-A's World Series will forever be known as the "Earthquake series." Game Three was scheduled to take place on Tuesday, October 17 in San Francisco's Candlestick Park. However, a major earthquake struck the Bay Area, causing significant damage around the city of San Francisco, including to the ballpark itself. After a delay of ten days, the series resumed with Game Three. Oakland taking a commanding 3 games to 0 lead with the win in that contest and would go on to sweep the series.
