 Oakland's season ends
Milton Bradley and Eric Chavez hit RBI doubles in the first, and Jay Payton added a solo homer, but the A's couldn't find a way to avert a sweep at Comerica Park. Dan Haren meant business early, fanning six batters over the first three innings. Huston Street gave up Magglio Ordonez's walk-off three-run homer in the ninth.
