Oakland Athletics v Los Angeles Dodgers

The Dodgers are coming off a thrilling come-from-behind victory in Game 1 of the World Series. Down one run and down to his final strike, pinch-hitter Kirk Gibson hit a game-winning two-run home run off of Dennis Eckersley.

LA now leads the series 1-0, and turns to Cy Young Award front-runner Orel Hershiser for game 2. The Athletics will counter with Storm Davis, hoping that he’ll be able to guide them to a win so Oakland can head back to Oakland with the series tied.
