The only thing missing from the Oakland Athletics' 17th consecutive victory was a win for Cory Lidle. Lidle's masterful month came to an end Saturday when he gave up his first earned run in August on the month's final day, but the A's got enough late offense to defeat the Minnesota Twins, 6-3, and extend the majors' longest winning streak in 49 years.

Just days after Yankee pitcher Cory Lidle's small plane crashed into a Manhattan apartment tower, his hometown of West Covina swung into action to honor him. He had grown up playing Little League in this baseball-loving city of 115,000, which has produced at least a dozen other professional baseball players. Besides Lidle, they include his childhood friend, South Hills High School teammate and fellow Yankee Jason Giambi.

An estimated 1,000 mourners attended the memorial service of New York Yankees pitcher Cory Lidle on Tuesday in Covina, as friends and family members remembered him as a loving husband, father and friend who "never changed with his increase in salary." Lidle, 34, an avid pilot and nine-year major league veteran, was killed last week in Manhattan along with his flight instructor, Tyler Stanger, 26, of Walnut, when the single-engine plane they were flying crashed into a 42-story luxury high-rise.

Cory Lidle has become an official one-hit wonder. Lidle pitched his second one-hitter in just more than a month, giving up only a first-inning single Wednesday night as the Oakland Athletics defeated the Indians, 6-0, at Cleveland for their eighth consecutive victory. Lidle (7-9), who has a streak of 31 scoreless innings, gave up only a two-out single in the first to Ellis Burks. After walking Jim Thome, the right-hander didn't allow another runner.

Cory Lidle managed to regroup in time after his scoreless inning streak was ended after 32 innings because of an unearned run. David Justice's error helped end Lidle's streak, but the Oakland Athletics still managed to win their 13th game in a row, defeating the Kansas City Royals, 6-3, Monday night at Kansas City, Mo. "I lost my composure a little bit and I started overthrowing," Lidle said. "I didn't handle it very well."

When Roberto Clemente, Thurman Munson and Payne Stewart died in plane crashes, I don't remember where I was. But Cory Lidle will be different. Within a few minutes of his crash into a 50-story apartment building on Wednesday, I was watching TV news in my New York hotel room and realized that the site of the accident was perhaps 15 blocks from my hotel. So I looked out and watched the billowing smoke rise over a slice of the Upper East Side.

Cory Lidle took his turn keeping the New York Yankees off the scoreboard. Lidle pitched eight impressive innings, and Miguel Tejada and Eric Chavez homered to lead the visiting Oakland Athletics past New York, 8-0, Saturday. "Yeah, he gave us some problems," Yankee Manager Joe Torre said of Lidle. "He changes speeds. He keeps the ball off the good part of the bat. I just thought we looked a little anxious out there."

A small airplane carrying New York Yankees pitcher Cory Lidle and his flight instructor slammed into a luxury high-rise on Manhattan's Upper East Side on Wednesday afternoon, exploding in a fireball that killed both men and engulfed two floors of the building. Authorities termed the 2:42 p.m. crash an accident, but it evoked emotional reactions from New Yorkers who vividly recall the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center a little more than five years ago.
