Oakland would expand its lead behind the strength of Dave Henderson, who smashed two home runs, a double and added four RBIs in a 13-7 victory. Hendu, who hit .308 for the series, chipped in a hit and two runs in the A's Game 4 triumph as well, completing the sweep of their in-state rivals and winning their first Series in 15 years.
