What we remember of that the game was the quiet anticipation of seeing Dravecky pitch again, it was a good size crowd (34,810) for a weekday day game, and we ended up getting our ticket the day before - just $10 for a lower box seat! The Giants ended up winning the game (4-3) and Dravecky was the winning pitcher. He pitched eight innings, giving up three runs on just four hits, and had five strikeouts. Matt Williams had a two-run home run, and compiled 3 RBI on the day, while Terry Kennedy plated the other run. Steve Bedrosian was credited with the save.
Unfortunately, in his very next start in Montreal, Dravecky snapped his pitching arm while making a pitch, and that ended his career. Dravecky spent the bulk of his career with the San Diego Padres, but he will always will be remembered as a San Francisco Giant for the way he fought and worked his way back to the Bigs, and the manner in which he conducted himself after his career.
