Hot corner

May 29, 1998

Quote: "After four homestands it became clear that our dome was not playing the way the other domes are playing. The structures were coming into play a lot more than anywhere else." -- Devil Rays general manager Chuck LaMar, on ground-rule changes that now declare balls that reach the catwalk 300 feet from the plate a home run.

It's a fact: The Twins, who start a seven-game homestand tonight, are 9-15 at home and 14-12 on the road.

Who's hot: The Mariners' Alex Rodriguez had two hits, including a homer, to extend his season-high hitting streak to 12 games.

Who's not: Tim Wakefield was the third consecutive Red Sox starter to fail to get through the fourth inning against the Yankees.

On deck: Cleveland's Bartolo Colon (3-3) faces Roger Clemens (5-5) tonight in Toronto. The two combined for 17 strikeouts when Clemens beat Colon, 7-2, last Saturday at Jacobs Field.
