increase bat spee, i would say do a little bit of lifting, hips, the hips are what provide the power. and for speed wise, just work on quick hands, by getting your hands inside of the ball. swings and different drills work wonders.

If you face an overpowering pitcher such as Clemens was in the series but at your level and you cant catch up,you are probably reading the pitch then deciding to swing then beginning your swing as you would on the avg. pitcher but this guy has already jammed you.TedWilliams would tell his hitters they need to anticipate and start there swing in their zone and if pitch is not there then abort.this small change can make the difference in catching up or not and there is not enough momentum yet that you can't check your swing,also stay off the high pitch it will get you every time.
