When one signed a pitcher, the other signed one, too. And the competition carried over to the season. "I think it was fated. I think this was meant to be," Orioles manager Davey Johnson said. "There's always been a great rivalry between the Yankees and Orioles." With a four-game sweep at Camden Yards following the All-Star break, New York appeared to put the Orioles away. The Yankees opened a 12-game lead on July 29, but Baltimore cut it to 2 '/a games on Sept. 15. Only when New York won two of three from the Orioles in mid-month did the lead seem safe. "The way they played the second half of the year, I sort of expected this to happen," Yankees manager Joe Torre said. Both teams have players limping into the series. If B.J. Surhoff isn't ready because of a sore left hamstring and right knee, Mike Devereaux or Pete Incaviglia will start in left field for the Orioles. New York expects Paul O'Neill to start despite his sore right hamstring, but if it hampers him too much, Darryl Strawberry could get a start. "At this stage of the year, it doesn't matter what the matchups are," New York's Cecil Fielder said.

"I thought for sure Coney was going in Game 1 and I was going in Game 2," said Pettitte, who pitched the second game of the Texas series. Torre made the decision Sunday on the team plane as the Yankees came home from Arlington. "We do it on the run," Torre said. "Sure, you use stats, but a lot of things are from the gut. A lot of time stats don't tell you the mood of the team, how people are physi- Quarterback O'Donnell suffers shoulder injury in 34-13 loss to Raiders By DAVE GOLDBERG The Associated Press In the NFL, "on any given Sunday" means the unpredictable can happen any weekend. Last Sunday, however, was strictly predictable: the Jets and Bengals lost and Bryan Cox mouthed off. For the Jets, it was another example of how when bad things start, they snowball. Not only did they lose 34-13 to Oakland, their sixth straight loss this season and the 19th in 22 games since Rich Kotite took over as head coach last season, but they lost their $25 million quarterback, Neil O'Donnell with a separated shoulder. They already were without Keyshawn Johnson, and lost Webster Slaughter during the game, leaving Wayne Chrebet as the only experienced wide receiver (Jeff Graham played, but was hurt). They also were without middle linebacker Marvin Jones, who's rarely been healthy since he was picked fourth overall in the 1993 draft, and Hugh Douglas, last year's defensive rookie of the year. What does this mean for Kotite, who is now 3-26 in his last 29 games (he lost his last seven as coach of the Eagles in 1994)? Probably nothing for this year and maybe nothing next year — the injuries give Leon Hess a convenient excuse for the losses. But it's interesting to note that Pete Carroll, fired after going 6-10 in in his only season, 1994, is now the defensive coordinator of the 49ers and one of the hot head coaching prospects again. • And Bruce Coslet, who preceded Carroll, could pop up again in Cincinnati, where he's the offensive coordinator. As for the other predictables: • Cincinnati also demonstrated that losers are losers are losers as Dave Shula lost his 50th game before his 20th win (he has 19). But Shula can hardly be blamed for what happened Sunday night, a good effort by the Bengals that was blown away by fates right out of the Bruce Smith-Dennis Hopper commercial ("Bad thiiiiings, man"). Doug Pelfrey, their 81 percent field goal kicker, missed a 41-yarder that would have given Cincinnati a cally." Erickson, who didn't get a decision in Game 2 against Cleveland, was 0-2 in three starts against the Yankees this season but had a 1.96 ERA. "I thought we played them tough," he said. With a major-league record 257 homers, Baltimore probably has a better offense, but New York's pitching appears to be stronger. And the Yankees have the hot bullpen, which allowed just one earned run in 19 2-3 innings against Texas. "I see the Yankees heavily favored, but I still like our chances," Johnson said. New York is playing for its first AL pennant since 1981. Baltimore is in the league championship series for the first time since 1983. The Associated Press Sunday was another long afternoon for New York Jets head coach Rich Kotite (front), whose team lost 34-13 to Oakland and fell to 0-6 on the season. win in regulation, then Al Del Greco hit a>49-yarder to give Houston a 30-27 win in overtime. • Cox, a ticking time bomb after every game in Miami, had his first Chicago explosion during the Bears' 37-6 blowout by the Packers. First he berated an official after Brett Favre and Antonio Freeman connected on a prayer for a touchdown to end the first half. And he stood on the field without his helmet while Chris Jacke was missing the extra-point attempt. After the game, he exploded verbally. "We need to look ourselves in the mirror because some of us need to go see the wizard. We don't have a lot of heart," he said. Asked what he meant, Cox began screaming: "Get some damn heart, like the lion in the Wizard of Oz! Heart! Heart! Heart! Heart! See the wizard, get some heart!" • The Lions were their schizophrenic selves, jumping off to a 280 lead of winless Atlanta, then hanging on for a 28-24 victory. "You start thinking you're good and you're going to be a great team that can walk all over somebody," Herman Moore said. "I think it opened our eyes a lot, the players and the coaches." Until next week. Streak San Francisco's ho-hum 28-11 win in St. Louis was its 13th BRIEFLY straight win over the Rams, second longest by one team against another in NFL history — the longest is Washington's 17-game streak over Detroit, which dates back to 1965. The 49ers' string goes back to 1990 in Anaheim, San Francisco and St. Louis. In those 13 games, the 49ers have outscored the Rams 427-171 or an average of 33-13. Elvis Grbac, the interim (sort of) quarterback, acknowledged that the Niners were looking ahead a bit to Green Bay next Monday night. "We wanted to get out quickly and get this over with," Grbac said. But George Seifert, whose team's four wins are over teams with a combined record of 2-14, would have none of it. "They still lead the series, don't they?" Seifert said of the Rams. Yes, in fact, they do — 48-44-2. Many of the Rams' wins go back 'to the days of Bob Waterfield, Tank Younger, Deacon Dan Tower and, more recently, Deacon Jones, Merlin Olsen and Jack Youngblood — against Joe Perry, John Henry Johnson, Y.A. Tittle, R.C. Owens and John Brodie. One more streak The Bills' 16-13 overtime win over the Colts not only disposed of the NFL's last unbeaten team, but was the llth straight time the Bills have won in a game decided by less than seven points. And while this isn't a streak, the Dolphins' 22-15 loss to the Sea- hawks made them 5-9 in the last 14 games that Dan Marino has missed. Flying high in Florida Maybe Ken Behring chose the wrong site when he attempted to move the Seahawks from Seattle to Los Angeles. The Seahawks already have made two trips to Florida, more than 10,000 miles of flying. They'll take it — they're 2-0 in Florida after Sunday's win over the Dolphins and 0-4 in the rest of the country, including 0-3 at home, where they're attempting to draw fans and convince Paul Allen to exercise his option to keep the team in the Pacific Northwest. Is it the Florida climate? The Seahawks, whose other win was in Tampa, beat the Dolphins in a downpour Sunday — Seattle weather. They're 0-3 in the King- dome, which is covered so the players can stay dry while it rains outside. South XC boys, girls second at McPherson McPHERSON — Salina South's boys and girls cross country teams both placed second at Monday's McPherson Invitational. South's boys scored 44 points, just six in back of first place Hutchinson. The Cougars were led by the second-place finish of Brandon Ebert, who covered the 3.1-mile layout at Rolling Acres Golf Course in 17:19. Buhler's Mark Menefee headed the field in a course- and meet-record time of 16:26.2, eclipsing the former mark of 16:29.8 set by Salina South's Ben Houltberg last year. South's Chad Wahlgren (5th, 17:40), Matt Perry (10th, 18:03), Steve Waters (12th, 18:12) and Brian Lamia (15th, 18:23) also medaled. "Brandon Ebert ran super as well as Steve Waters and Matt Perry," South coach Jay Edwards said. "We were 11 points behind (Hutchinson) at the 2-mile point and we came back and cut some points off that." McPherson scored 25 points to capture the girls' team title after Brooke Smith (13:02.1), Amy Ferrell (13:04) and Shelly Heinen (13:08) swept the top three places. South medaled four runners — Jami Scoville (5th, 13:28), Tina Baxa (8th, 13:38), Lesa McCumber (10th, 13:44) and Amanda Pratt (15th, 13:50) — and finished with 53 points. "We were a little tired from our workout Saturday, but McPherson just really ran well," Edwards said. McPherson is one of the teams South will contend with at the Class 5A regional meet Oct. 26, which will also be held at Rolling Acres Golf Course. "We got to run the (regional) course and against some ranked teams today," Edwards said. "Regional will be a real dogfight."
