    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (3)

      • (on his game-winning hit in the 10th inning)
        Kansas City First Baseman Willie Aikens: I overswung at one pitch in the 10th. Then I told myself to calm down and hit it where it's pitched. I knew (center fielder Garry) Maddox didn't have a chance.

      • Philadelphia Manager Dallas Green: We had a chance to crush this team tonight, but we just passed it up. We had the game if we can come up with that one clutch hit. We had the runners but we just couldn't get them to home plate.
        (on his starter Dick Ruthven)
        Philadelphia Manager Dallas Green: I though he still had fine stuff the last (ninth) inning, but how long can you let him go?

      • (on his surgery between Games 2 and 3)
        Kansas City Third Baseman George Brett: (laughing) It's all behind me now. But if we lose tonight, the whole team is going to feel it's got hemorrhoids.
