Hot corner AMERICAN LEAGUE

July 14, 1998

Quote: "We didn't get a Beanie Baby. I guess that's what happens when you lose." -- White Sox shortstop Chris Snopek about Chicago's 4-3 loss to the Royals Sunday in a game in which Beanie Babies were given out as a promotion.

It's a fact: With one more appearance, Indians reliever Paul Assenmacher will pass Walter Johnson for 20th on the all-time list.

Who's hot: The Indians' Manny Ramirez has 37 RBIs in his last 25 games.

Who's not: Devil Rays pitchers have hit a major-league-high 58 batters and are on pace to hit 104 this season. That would break a 103-year-old record of 85 set by the Pirates in 1895.

On deck: The Mariners have moved third baseman Russ Davis to left field and he becomes the 58th player since 1989 to land there beside Ken Griffey.
