this afternoon in baseball
in 1972 the Oakland Athletics end their own drought by winning their first world series since 1930, when they were in Philadelphia, beating the Cardinals. they beat Cincinnati 3-2 in game seven to win the series. it was also their first trip to the series since 1931, losing that one to the Cardinals that year. Jim "Catfish" Hunter got the win, Pedro Borbon took the loss and Rollie Fingers got the save.
