Having not beaten Roger Clemens all year, the California bats were warm to the occasion as they jumped all over the Wagram ace. The Coolers sent 9 men to the plate in the lst and pushed across 3 big runs. Clemens was gone after 2 innings thanks to the big hat of Mark McGwire. After 1 out, Tony Fernandez singled, was sacrificed to 2nd by Rance Mulliniks, the McGwire did what he does best, sending an off—speed pitch deep to left. The Coolers would get no more, but that was plenty as Ron "Clemens" Robinson shut the Warhawks out on just five hits. Robinson went the distance striking out 9 and walking only 2.

The Warhawks took out their lst game frustrations by blasting Cooler starter Rick Rhoden for 2 homers and 4 first inning runs. Unfortunately for Wagram starter John Farrell, the Cooler bats were just as hot. A .3—run blast by none other than Mark McGwire, a Dave Parker double, and a throwing error by Farrell left the Coolers with a 5—4 lead and the momentum after 1 inning. CAC added another run in the second and Rhoden, after that rocky first, was starting to settle down. Wagram nicked Rhoden for one more in the 4th, making it 6-5 , but that's the way it stayed until that fateful 8th inning. California, clinging to the one run lead, finally relieved Rhoden, bringing in Andy Hawkins to pitch the 8th, before Bob Walk would come on to gain the save in the 9th. That's the way manager White would have liked it, but Waqram had another idea as Tim Teufel, who already had 4 hits in the series, sent a 2 out offering into the CF bleachers for a 7—6 Wagram lead. The tying run got on due to confusion in the outfield as everybody converged on Julio Franco's pop fly, but nobody caught it. Wagram added an unearned run in the 9th and California's rally attempts were feeble at best, as all they could muster was a 1 out base on balls in the 8th.

Dave Parker then hit a 2-run shot for a 3—0 lead. Each team added a single tally i the 2nd and CAC went into the bottom of the 6th with a 4—1 lead and seemed to be cruising to a victory, but Wagram woke up and pounded in 5 runs in the inning. Andre Dawson led off with a double and Leon Durham singled him in. After a wild pitch, Mike LaValliere singled Durham to 3rd and Tracy Jones then singled to score run #2. With 2 on and none out, Tony Bernazard hit a 3-run shot to put WAW up 6—4. Wagram seemed to have the game in the bag as Dave Righetti came on to retire the first 2 in the ninth. Then disaster struck. Tommy Herr walked and Jose Canseco came through with a pinch-hit single, 2 on - 2 out. Coleman then stepped up and smacked one off the LF fence scoring both runs and tying the game. Then with 2 out in the 10th, Parker hit his second dinger of the game, a solo shot for the win. Sutcliffe struck 10 in 7 innings for the losers.

Wagram drew first blood in the 3rd as LaValliere led "off with a single and Curt Young, CAC's last minute starter, muffed Clemens' sac bunt attempt. Tracy Jones then came through again doubling in both runs and the Warhawks led 2*0. California evened it up in the 4th on Ernie Whjtt's 2 out, 2-run blast, but that was all the Coolers could muster against Clemens as he went the distance allowing 6 hits and fanning 9. Wagram, though went on to score 4 runs in the 7th as CAC played sloppy defense, an error and a passed ball went along with 4 WAW singles and a double in the inning. Henry Cotto added a solo pinch-hit HR in the 8th and Wagram evened the series at two with a 7-2 win.

The fans definitely got their money's worth in this wild one as the home team rallied to win it and advance to the World Series. Luis Polonia led off the game with a double, advanced to 3b on a passed ball and scored on a Bobby Bonilla SF. Dawson then hit a solo shot for a 2—0 lead. It didn't last long, as Coleman singled, stole second, advanced to 3b on a fly ball and scored on Mulliniks' double. One out later, Parker hit it for the distance. In the 3rd, Fernandez doubled and Mulliniks homered for a 5—2 CAC lead. The top of the 4th saw Andre Dawson triple, Teufel walk, Durham sac fly in Dawson, LaValliere double in Teufel, and Ward hit a loop single.

In CAC's half, Williams, Herr and Horton single, Coleman reaches on a FC and steals 2b, Fernandez beats Franco's throw for an rbi infield single, and Coleman scores on Mulliniks grounder, 8-7 California.
