A's sweep O's at home
Oakland: 5 Baltimore: 0
WP - Kingman (5-5) LP - Palmer (5-7)
HR - Baltimore: None Oakland - Murphy (10)
Four A's pitchers combined to shut out the Orioles
and Dwayne Murphy went deep for his 10th homer
of the season to pace the A's. The A's held Baltimore
to a mere 3 hits in the contest. Murphy, Rickey Henderson
and Tony Armas each had two hits in the game.
Oakland: 3 Baltimore: 1
WP - Langford (8-6) LP - McGregor (6-6)
HR - Baltimore: Crowley (4) Oakland: None
Rick Langford went the distance in beating
Baltimore, running his record on the year to 8 and 6 and
lowering his ERA to 2.10. Langford lost his shutout bid
in the 9th when he served up a bomb to Terry Crowley.
Overall though he was the star of this game as he
continues his bid for an A.L. ERA title.
Oakland: 5 Baltimore: 1
WP - Norris (8-7) LP - Flanagan (7-5)
HR - Baltimore: None Oakland: None
Oakland continued a run of dominant pitching performances,
this one from Mike Norris as he pitched 8 strong innings
leading the A's to a win and a sweep of the series.
Dwayne Murphy had a couple big RBIs for Oakland and
also stole a base.
