Oakland Sweeps Way to 14-4 Start

The ball was flying out of Camden Yards as the Athletics swept the Orioles in three games. Reggie Jackson and Jason Giambi both hit three dingers in the series and the Oaklanders ran their league-best start up to 14 wins in their first 18 games. Tim Hudson and Rube Waddell made impressive starts that placed them both among the ERA leaders.
