I have no idea who won, but I do remember that a high throw to first base pulled Boog Powell (6-4, 230) off the bag as he had to jump for the ball. He landed on top of the runner, Bert Campaneris (5-10, 160), resulting in the A's shortstop being taken off the field on a stretcher.
I can't believe I did this, oh, of course I can, but this looks to be the game in question. Does say the play was "unassisted," but that could easily be a mistake or a high chopper near the bag thay forced ol' Boog to jump. But it's the only game I can find from 1975 where Oakland was in town and Campy left early (and he left after the play in the 5th)
