Ron Fairly: Joel did something that he didn't do all year long, doing something fancy and ended up hitting the batter.... Do you remember when Joel threw side-armed? I don't think he had all year.
Well, the answer would be yes, in a game in Boston, when he faced Manny Ramirez I believe. That time Joel struck him out with a side-armed slider to end the inning. That move had 2 runners stranded on base if I remember correctly. It was also the game which the M's scored some runs off of Pedro Martinez and then ended up losing.
