Hot corner

July 11, 1998

Quote: "At 3-2, if that pitch was in the stadium, I was swinging. I figured it would be close enough to swing." -- Indians' David Justice, who hit a 3-2 pitch from Greg Swindell with the bases loaded in the ninth last night to beat Minnesota, 6-5.

It's a fact: Twins closer Rick Aguilera has 19 saves, moving him into a tie with Todd Worrell for 12th on the all-time list with 256.

Who's hot: In his first 162 at-bats, the Tigers' Tony Clark hit four homers. In his past 160 at-bats, he has 14.

Who's not: With its defeat by New York last night, Tampa Bay has lost eight straight.

On deck: Tonight's Yankees-Devil Rays game, featuring a matchup of All-Stars David Cone (12-2) for New York and Rolando Arrojo (10-5) for Tampa Bay, is a sellout -- the Devil Rays' first since Opening Day.
