Hot corner

July 16, 1998

Quote: "I would say this takes the monkey off our backs, but it felt more like a gorilla." -- Tampa Bay's Paul Sorrento after the Devil Rays' ended their 11-game losing streak with a 5-4 victory over Boston on Tuesday.

It's a fact: The Yankees had their second three-homer inning of the year last night.

Who's hot: The White Sox's Albert Belle is 19-for-36 (.530) with nine homers in his past nine games.

Who's not: The Indians' Dave Justice is in a 1-for-16 slump.

On deck: Yankees starter David Cone (13-2) attempts to become the majors' first 14-game winner. He faces the Tigers' Brian Moehler (9-6), who is 8-0 at Tiger Stadium this year with a league-low 2.05 ERA at home.
