Hot corner

July 13, 1998

Quote: "They had to give me directions from the bullpen how to get back out there. They just said go to the bump. It took me a second, but I found it." -- Yankees reliever Mike Stanton (4-0), who pitched the final 1 1/3 innings for a victory yesterday. It was his first appearance since ending a five-game suspension for hitting the Orioles' Eric Davis with a pitch on June 15.

It's a fact: The consecutive homers by Magglio Ordonez and Wil Cordero yesterday were the seventh for the White Sox this season.

Who's hot: The Indians' Travis Fryman has hit home runs in three consecutive games.

Who's not: Juan Gonzalez, who leads the majors with 101 RBIs but has not driven in a run in four games since the All-Star break, does not have an RBI in 10 of the Rangers' past 12 games.

On deck: Possible American League Championship Series combatants Cleveland and the New York Yankees square off five times this week -- a two-game set starting today at Jacobs Field and a three-game series opening Friday at Yankee Stadium.
