Quote: "It makes you wonder where that stuff's been all year. It goes to show you it's there." -- Mariners manager Lou Piniella after watching pitcher Randy Johnson deliver 15-strikeout shutout effort vs. the Angels.

It's a fact: The Devil Rays have faced Cy Young winners in 14 games this season for a 4-10 record.

Who's hot: Mariners left-hander Randy Johnson has struck out 12 or more batters in five straight starts.

Who's not: The Rangers' Juan Gonzalez, who had 101 RBIs at the All-Star break, is 2-for-11 in three games since the break with no RBIs.

On deck: Royals pitcher Kevin Appier, who has been out since undergoing surgery on his shoulder in March, is throwing simulated games in Florida.
