AL hot corner

June 05, 1998

Quote: "I still love my job and I still love coming to work, but losing is tough. It's tough because you have to repeat yourself." -- Royals manager Tony Muser after yesterday's loss to White Sox.

It's a fact: The Tigers have been outscored 23-6 during their four-game losing streak.

Who's hot: Oakland's Scott Spiezio singled yesterday to extend his hitting streak to a career-best 13 games. It's also a season-high for an A's player.

Who's not: The Rangers' Juan Gonzalez, who leads the majors with 73 RBIs, went 0-4 and is just 1-for-18 with eight strikeouts in his last four games.

On deck: The Mariners' new Safeco Field, scheduled to open in July 1999, will be the nation's first ballpark with a retractable roof that covers, but does not enclose, the playing field.
