      • (on his game-winning home run)
        Oakland First Baseman Mark McGwire: I sort of had a feeling. When I'm behind 0-1 or 1-2, I look for anything. But they'd been throwing fastballs to me regularly. I thought he (Jay Howell) would come with a fastball. It was time I caught up with them. I had a few cuts, but I just fouled them off. It was a matter of me just catching up with one.
        Oakland First Baseman Mark McGwire: it has to be number one. In the latter part of the season, a newspaper asked me what would be my ultimate thrill. I said 'hit a home run in the World Series. Win a ball game.' I did it tonight.

      • (on Mark McGwire's game winning home run)
        Oakland Manager Tony LaRussa: If felt kind of ridiculous because I had just yelled in the dugout that we had put the ball in the air enough. I just wanted a couple of line drives. The next thing I know ... well, it was kind of a line drive. A high line drive.
