Willie Montanez lofted one into the 'cheap seats' as the Atlanta Athletics
defeated the San Francisco Yankees 4 to 3 at Oakland Coliseum.
 
Atlanta went ahead for good in the 2nd inning plating one baserunner.  After
an out was recorded, Montanez smashed a solo-shot out of the park.  Dale
Murphy dug into the batters box next, but he struck out.  Rodney Scott then
drew a walk.  San Francisco threatened in the 9th but their rally came up
short.  
 
Rick Langford(2-5) got credit for the victory, pitching 5 innings and allowing
1 run. Langford was helped out by Pablo Torrealba who recorded his 1st save.
Ed Figueroa(1-5) was hit with the loss.  He got hit hard, allowing 10 hits
and 2 walks in 6 innings.  
 
Chuck Gangel was in a contemplative mood after the tough loss, 'It is really
hard to lose this kind of a game.  It may seem weird to some, but it is
easier to take the occasional blow-out loss.  It is the ones that just barely
get away that hurt so much - like this one!'
