Walking in from the bullpen, Orioles pitching coach Dick Bosman reminded Ben McDonald of all that was at stake. He didn't just need to hold down the American League's top-hitting team. He needed to save the bullpen for the second game of the day-night doubleheader.Fortunately for the Orioles, McDonald rose to both challenges. Rookie Mike Oquist stumbled predictably in the nightcap, lasting 2 2/3 innings, creating a 5-0 hole and absorbing a 9-2 defeat after McDonald pitched eight innings to win the opener, 10-4.

CLEVELAND -- A big part of any catcher's job includes being there for his pitcher when he needs him.Jeff Tackett was there for Ben McDonald last night, though not in the traditional sense.Tackett, the Orioles' backup catcher, did his starting pitcher a favor long after McDonald was blasted right out of the game by the Cleveland Indians.Tackett, giving Chris Hoiles a rare day off, homered in the eighth inning to break a tie and give the Orioles, the last team to visit Jacobs Field, a 7-6 victory over the Indians.

One more swing will do it. The Orioles' Cal Ripken is only one home run away from becoming the fourth shortstop in major-league history to hit 30.Ripken clubbed No. 29 Saturday night against the Cleveland Indians, establishing a career-high. He hit 28 in his rookie year of 1982.The only shortstops who have hit 30 home runs are Ernie Banks of the Chicago Cubs, Rico Petrocelli of the Boston Red Sox and Vern Stephens, also of the Red Sox. Banks did it five times, with a high of 47 in 1958. Petrocelli did it most recently, with 40 in 1969.

It does not appear as though Glenn Davis will appear in either of the Orioles' last two games of this abbreviated homestand against the Boston Red Sox."I doubt it," manager John Oates said when asked if Davis would face lefthander Tom Bolton (8-8, 4.88) in the second game of the series tonight (7:35, HTS)."He's on a day-to-day basis," said Oates, "but he's not doing too well right now. He's got a spasm in the back."The problem is not related to the injury in the neck and shoulder that sidelined Davis for almost four months earlier in the season.

The most important development for the Boston Red Sox tonight could come before the second game of the series against the Orioles at Memorial Stadium.Roger Clemens, who has been sidelined for two weeks, is scheduled to throw in the bullpen before the game. His status will be updated after the workout, and if the righthander is deemed fit, he is likely to start against the Yankees in New York Friday night.Even if he passes tonight's test, Clemens (20-6, 1.98) would get only three more starts in the regular season.

Three of the most meaningful games most Boston players have ever been involved in will take place at Fenway Park, starting tonight. It is ironic that the Red Sox and the Toronto Blue Jays -- with short-term and long-term histories of late-season spills -- will meet to decide supremacy in the American League East."

OAKLAND, Calif. -- There was little the Boston Red Sox could do yesterday to keep the Oakland Athletics out of the World Series. The best they could hope for was to steal some of their thunder, but the A's didn't need any thunder this time anyway.The Roger Clemens controversy accomplished one thing. It made the final game of the American League Championship Series memorable. But it was Dave Stewart who made it the final game.Stewart gave up four hits over eight-plus innings to carry the A's to a 3-1 victory and a four-game playoff sweep.
