Hot corner

July 21, 1998

Quote: "You must be a glass-is-half-empty kind of guy. I'm a glass-is-half-full kind of guy." -- Red Sox manager Jimy Williams, to a reporter's question on whether he was concerned about his 56-40 team having lost three of its past five games.

It's a fact: The White Sox's Frank Thomas is now 96th all-time with 273 home runs, two behind Roger Maris and Brian Downing.

Who's hot: The Athletics' Kenny Rogers (10-3) has a four-game winning streak, having allowed only four earned runs in those games (32 innings). His ERA is now 2.80.

Who's not: The Devil Rays have lost three straight and 15 of their past 17 games.

On deck: Angels first baseman Cecil Fielder needs two doubles for 200 in his career.
