Hot corner

July 06, 1998

Quote: "It's nothing that anybody really wants, but Roger Clemens is going to strike guys out. He's been doing it for years, and it's really not a shame because I'm going to strike out a lot more times." -- The Devil Rays' Randy Winn, Clemens' 3,000th strikeout victim.

It's a fact: The Indians have at least one extra-base hit in every game this season.

Who's hot: The Red Sox's Mike Benjamin has driven in 13 runs in his past eight games. He had 13 in the previous 59 games.

Who's not: The White Sox's Jaime Navarro is 1-2 with an 11.34 ERA in his past four starts.

On deck: Damion Easley is the first second baseman to represent the Tigers in the All-Star Game since Lou Whitaker in 1987. Whitaker wound up missing that game because of an injury.
