    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (3)

      • (on his two-run, sixth inning pinch-hit home run on a 1-2 pitch that brought the Dodgers to within 6-5)
        Los Angeles Pinch Hitter Jay Johnstone: In that situation, I'm thinking about cutting down my swing and hitting something in the strike zone. He (Ron Davis) throws the ball very well. All I'm trying to do is hit the ball. I hit a high pop up and the wind caught it.
        (when a media member asked him to be serious)
        Los Angeles Pinch Hitter Jay Johnstone: How I can be serious, we're in the World Series. If you can't have fun, what the hell? Somebody's going to win, but there are no losers in the World Series. We're all winners.

      • Los Angeles Right Fielder Rick Monday: It wasn't your basic Picasso. But it's exciting to win. This game would have been very draining if we had lost. If we do, we are down 3-1 and in big trouble.

      • Los Angeles Reliever Steve Howe: You want to talk about baffling with them with bull? My wife could have thrown better than I did. But I feel great about this. We're even now, it's a three-game playoff.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • It wasn't your basic Picasso
        Refers to Spanish painter, draughtsman and sculptor Pablo Ruiz Picasso (1881–1973). Picasso, who lived the majority most of his adult life in France, is best known for co-founding the Cubist movement with Georges Braque.

        A little known fact is that his full name was Pablo Diego José Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno María de los Remedios Cipriano de la Santísima Trinidad Ruiz y Picasso.
