The Oakland A's visit Memorial Stadium for the last time this weekend in the midst of a difficult stretch that could determine whether they win a fourth straight American League pennant.Starting with the series in Cleveland that concluded with a bitter 8-7 loss to the Indians last night, the A's were facing 21 of 27 games on the road. To make matters worse, they have a few key players battling horrendous slumps.Dave Henderson is 9-for-85, Mark McGwire 4-for-36, and Carney Lansford, who just returned from a 90-day stint on the disabled list, had only one hit in 16 at-bats before returning to the Bay Area yesterday to continue his rehabilitation.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Somehow it doesn't figure that the Oakland A's can win a fourth straight American League pennant with a pitching staff that has numbers almost as bad as the Orioles.But that is the situation facing A's manager Tony La Russa, who doesn't deny that his staff needs dramatic improvement in order to win. "People look at our pitching and say 'It's going to be hard for them to win' -- and they're right," said La Russa. "We have to get better."Despite last night's easy win, the A's go into tonight's game against the Orioles with the second worst earned run average (4.78)

BOSTON -- Jose Canseco has been shooting his mouth off again, but the Oakland Athletics earned the right to talk tough Saturday night.They survived six scoreless innings by Roger Clemens. They ran roughshod over an already battle-weary Boston Red Sox bullpen. They scored seven runs in the ninth inning to turn Game 1 of the American League playoffs into a 9-1 laugher.For an encore, they had 27-game winner Bob Welch witing totake his turn against rookie right-hander Daba Kiecker. No wonder Canseco was willing to flirt with what could turn out to be some famous last words.

STARTING PITCHING Dave Stewart has established himself as the best clutch pitcher baseball, and Bob Welch has learned to stay under control in big-game situations. The weak link for the Athletics is Mike Moore, who struggled through the regular season but pitched well in his only playoff appearance. The three A's starters combined on a 1.27 ERA in Oakland's four-game playoff sweep. The Reds rotation -- Jose Rijo, Tom Browning and Danny Jackson -- was not quite so impressive against the Pirates and now must face an even better offensive team.

Make no mistake about it, the team that just left the Orioles in a funk is still the one that other American League clubs fear -- and try to emulate -- the most.That is the unsolicited testimony of manager John Oates, who would like to think the Orioles someday soon will command the respect the Oakland A's now demand."I'm not taking anything away from our guys, I think they played hard throughout," Oates said after the A's became the first visiting team to sweep a series at Camden Yards, by virtue of last night's 4-2 win."

The Bash Brothers didn't raise a forearm last night, but the renewed and improved Oakland Athletics left behind some bruised egos when they slipped out of Baltimore.Orioles right-hander Mike Mussina brought home a run with a wild pitch and set up the go-ahead run with another to help the A's complete a three-game sweep with a 4-2 victory at Camden Yards. The loss, combined with Toronto's 8-7 win over Minnesota, knocked the Orioles out of first place in the American League East.The Orioles had been next to invincible at home until the A's arrived in town, but even their last unbeaten pitcher could not keep the Oakland lineup under wraps.

In pitching parlance, Jeff Ballard made some pitches when he had to and got some big outs. There just weren't enough of either."It's real frustrating, I'm disappointed right now," the lefthandesaid after the Orioles' 6-3 loss to the Oakland A's last night. "I expected to do better."One night after Jeff Robinson gave up 10 hits, three walks, buonly one run, Ballard worked through five innings, giving up four hits, three walks and two runs, one unearned.The lefthander appeared on the verge of duplicating Robinson'performance.
