Hot corner

July 17, 1998

Quote: "I'm going to start cutting my hair, so you guys don't think I'm losing it like Roger Maris did." -- Seattle's Ken Griffey, talking to reporters about the chase for the home run record.

It's a fact: Brian Moehler, 10-6 overall, is the first Detroit pitcher to win his first nine games at home in at least 45 years.

Who's hot: Tim Wakefield of Boston has won five times in his past six decisions.

Who's not: Kansas City's Hal Morris has a .331 average, but was 0-for-4 yesterday and is hitless in his past three games.

On deck: New York's David Wells (11-2), the AL's All-Star game starter, pitches against fellow All-Star Roger Clemens (10-6) in Toronto tonight.
