On October 10, 1990 – The Oakland Athletics sweep the Boston Red Sox for the American League pennant and their third straight trip to the World Series with a 3 – 1 victory. MVP Dave Stewart wins for the eighth straight time in head-to-head match-ups with Roger Clemens, who is ejected in the 2nd inning for arguing balls and strikes with umpire Terry Cooney.

Clemens will be charged with all 3 runs, however, he was pitching, Carney Lansford scored on a fielder’s choice by Mark McGwire. Tom Bolton’s first batter he faced was Mike Mike Gallego who greeted him with a 2 run double.  The A’s would be held scoreless the remainder of the game. The Red Sox scored a run in the 9th when the first two batters Ellis Burks doubled and Jody Reed singled off Stewart, but Rick Honeycutt came in and closed the door.
