Episode Summary

EDIT
1989 ALCS, Game 4: A's at Blue Jays
October 7, 1989: 1989 ALCS, Game 4: Oakland A's 6 at Toronto Blue Jays 5, F -- With the A's leading the Series 3-1, Game 4's pitching match-up pitted a former Cy Young winner, Mike Flanagan (1979) against a future one (1990), Bob Welch. Rickey Henderson continued his sizzling series offense early (3 for 8 with four walks, five runs scored, and seven stolen bases) by drilling a two-run homer in the third, but Jose Conseco's moonshot later that inning really caused a buzz – it was the first ball ever hit into the fifth-tier upper deck of SkyDome. In the stunned silence of the Dome, fans wondered if they had witnessed a 500-foot blast; in the end the official measurement was 480 feet. No matter; Oakland was handed a 3-0 lead. Henderson hit another two-run shot to make it 5-1, elevating his series average to .500. The Blue Jays continued to battle back through the eighth, but closer and future Hall-of-Famer Dennis Eckersley shut the door and the A's took a commanding 3-1 series lead.moreless
