Hot corner

July 18, 1998

Quote: "I've got to learn when we get up to bear down a little bit more and make some quality pitches. In the big leagues, the hitters are going to bear down in that situation. I've got to learn to do that, too." -- Tigers rookie Brian Powell after earning his first major-league win yesterday.

It's a fact: The Twins lead the league in grounding into double plays (98).

Who's hot: Red Sox right-hander Tim Wakefield is 7-1 in 11 starts at Fenway Park this season.

Who's not: With last night's defeat by the Rangers, the Devil Rays have lost 13 of their last 15 games.

On deck: Yankees center fielder Bernie Williams, sidelined since June 11 with a sprained right knee, is expected to make his return as a designated hitter this afternoon in Toronto.
