Hot corner

June 01, 1998

Quote: "I think the ball ended up in somebody's Caesar salad as one big crouton." -- Indians manager Mike Hargrove, on Jim Thome's 483-foot home run into SkyDome's Sightlines restaurant in center field.

It's a fact: Damion Easley's 34 RBIs in May were the most for a Tiger in one month since Rocky Colavito had 38 in July 1961.

Who's hot: The Royals' Jeff King went 3-for-4 with two doubles, a homer, three runs and two RBIs and has 11 hits in his past 24 at-bats (.458).

Who's not: The Tigers' Frank Castillo has an ERA of 10.52 in seven starts.

On deck: The Red Sox open a two-game series with the Blue Jays tonight in Toronto, but won't have to face their former ace, Roger Clemens, in either game.
