Hot corner

July 23, 1998

Quote: "See you all at the Waffle House." -- Red Sox manager Jimy Williams to his players after Tuesday's soggy day-night doubleheader in Cleveland ended at 12: 48 a.m. yesterday.

It's a fact: The Yankees are 71-25, the franchise's best record ever for the first 96 games of the season and one game behind the 1902 Pittsburgh Pirates for the best record this century at that point in a season.

Who's hot: The Rangers' Juan Gonzalez has four homers and 10 RBIs in his past three games after going nine games without an RBI.

Who's not: The Tigers' Brian Hunter, who set a record going 0-for-13 in a doubleheader Monday night against the Yankees, went 0-for-5 against them Tuesday and 0-for-4 yesterday.

On deck: The Twins' Eric Milton (University of Maryland), 5-7 overall and 1-5 at home, works tonight against the Metrodome hex and Jason Dickson (9-7) of the Angels.
