* Yankees 2B Steve Sax needs 2 more stolen bases to move into a tie for 20th place on the club's all-time list with 107. The 20th spot is occupied by Babe Ruth, who was a little faster than he looked.
* Padres P Bruce Hurst has made 24 starts this year. He has pitched into the sixth inning in all of them.
* Tigers 1B Cecil Fielder had 34 home runs and 98 RBI after 114 games this year. He had 35 home runs and 90 RBI after the same number last year. He is beginning to look like a solid bet to become the first player to lead the AL in homers and RBI over consecutive seasons since Jimmie Foxx in 1932-33.
