Hot corner

August 02, 1998

Quote: "I'm sorry that I stopped it, but it's a jungle out there and I had to do my job and get him out." -- Red Sox starter Pedro Martinez, who helped end Garret Anderson's 28-game hitting streak.

It's a fact: Derek Jeter (21) and Chuck Knoblauch (23) are the first Yankees middle-infield combination ever to both have more than 20 stolen bases in a season.

Who's hot: Steve Reed has been unscored upon in 17 consecutive outings (22 1/3 innings) with the Giants and Indians. He has pitched 7 2/3 scoreless innings for the Indians, allowing three hits.

Who's not: The Angels have lost 19 of 28.

On deck: Tigers right-hander Frank Castillo has been dropped from the starting rotation and will be replaced by Bryce Florie (5-5, 4.52 ERA), who is scheduled to start Tuesday's game against the Orioles. Castillo (3-7, 8.10 ERA) will work in long relief.
