Hot corner AMERICAN LEAGUE

May 28, 1998

Quote: "Evidently we had a personality conflict. In his mind I was a bad leader. I didn't do what he wanted done." -- Rangers manager Johnny Oates on Orioles owner Peter Angelos.

It's a fact: Rangers' Juan Gonzalez played in his 1,000th game. With 852 RBIs, he has the seventh-highest total for 1,000 games in major-league history -- Hank Greenberg is the leader with 961 RBIs in his first 1,000 games.

Who's hot: The Rangers' Juan Gonzalez singled home a run, giving him a major-league-leading 62 RBIs.

Who's not: The Twins' Eric Milton (Maryland) has lost four of his past five decisions.

On deck: The Red Sox's Tim Wakefield (6-1) faces the Yankees' David Wells (6-1). The first-place Yankees took two of three from the second-place Red Sox last weekend, outscoring them 30-12.
