When I was a kid, my favorite players were always pitchers, and, specifically Nolan Ryan and Dave Stewart. I have a very specific yet not fully realized memory of a particular game in which they faced each other.
I didn’t see the game, but remember reading the box score the next morning, and being amazed at the pitching performances. It was an extra-inning game, they each went the distance, and each allowed something like 3-5 hits. I think the score must have been 1-0. I don’t remember who won.
I found this box score site, but it doesn’t have scores for the Rangers or Athletics.
I presume the game happened in 1989 or 1990, during which Stewart’s 4-year 20-win-season streak overlapped Ryan’s Rangers years, but it’s not certain.
Anyone remember this game, or can direct me to a better box-score site?
