Hebner stepped up next and he drew a walk.  Jay Johnstone then ripped a
base-knock to load the bases.  Bake McBride was up next and he banged out a

Gossage(1-2) was tagged with the loss in relief.  'Now that is what I call
fun! I just love baseball, especially games like this, of course,' Greg
Grover offered.  'Everyone at the stadium had a great time - did you see the
fans go wild there at the end?!'
