    I remember this game…I remember the whole series. The only good thing about it was that they got it done, despite the horrific earthquake.

    Giant HRs by Greg Litton and Bill Bathe…reminded me of the only HR the Yankees hit when they were stomped by the Cincinnati Reds in 1976. It came from the easily forgettable Jim Mason.
