Oh, Jack Cust, where have you been all my life? A base hit might have won the game, but who needs a base hit when you can pop a three-run homer to complete the comeback from being down 5-1 and and 7-4?
Of course, we can't forget Big Milt, either, for his two-run bomb to tie the game three batters earlier. Or Eric Chavez, who came through with a base hit to keep the game alive despite getting down 0-2.
That's an exciting end to a ballgame, folks. The A's officially have a knack for the big inning. (Now if they can get rid of their knack for the "small ballgame," they'll be all set to challenge the Red Sox and Brewers.)
