Hot corner

July 27, 1998

Quote: "I threw everything at him, even one 40 mph. After that one, I know he's got a career in softball." -- Athletics knuckleballer Tom Candiotti on the Devil Rays' Fred McGriff, who went 4-for-4 with a home run.

It's a fact: The Red Sox have hit 44 inside-the-park homers at Fenway. The last before Nomar Garciaparra's was by Luis Rivera off the Athletics' Mike Moore in 1991.

Who's hot: The Twins' Todd Walker is 15-for-20 over the past six games, raising his average to .352.

Who's not: The Athletics' Omar Olivares lost for the fifth time in seven starts.

On deck: The Indians begin a 12-game road trip tomorrow in Seattle that also takes them to Anaheim, Oakland and Tampa Bay.
