The A's won their seventh straight playoff game, a streak that dates back to 1989, when they wiped out Toronto in five games. Toronto will try to even the se ries Thursday night when David Cone pitches against Mike Moore. "Everybody has kind of writ ten us off," Steinbach said. "But our attitude all year has been kind of, 'Let's play ball.' Now we have a big game tomorrow. We have a real tough pitcher going against us in David Cone." Pat Borders also homered for Toronto. McGwire silenced another sell out crowd in the SkyDome with a two-run shot in the second. Stein bach followed with a homer to left, marking the first consecutive playoff Rick Cerone and Lou Piniella did it for the New York Yankees in 1980 against the Kansas City Roy als.
