Orioles look to improve postseason chances vs. A's

BALTIMORE -- The Baltimore Orioles will try to improve their playoff chances with a pivotal three-game series against the Oakland A's beginning Monday at Camden Yards.

Baltimore didn't help its cause over the weekend by losing two of three games to the Los Angeles Angels, who are tied for the second AL wild-card position. The Orioles are four games back.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said his team needs to quickly regroup and focus on Oakland. The Orioles (60-65) and A's (54-70) split a four-game series last week at Oakland Coliseum.
