      • There was a moment of silence prior to the game in honor of the Commissioner A. Bartlett Giamatti, who died suddenly from a massive heart attack on September 1.

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Oakland Starter Dave Stewart: There was necessity for a little extra in the last inning. I wanted the shutout and I knew I needed strikeouts to do it.

      • San Francisco Manager Roger Craig: We never seem to do anything easy. We always seem to have to come from behind all the time.

      • (on Oakland starter Dave Stewart's performance)
        San Francisco First Baseman Will Clark: We ran into a buzz saw.
