Hot corner

August 07, 1998

Quote: "I kept looking for him to hit me, but I never faced him again. Now he's my teammate. Small world."

Boston pitcher Pedro Martinez, who says newly acquired Red Soxer Pete Schourek hit him deliberately in a game three years ago.

It's a fact: Tigers catcher Raul Casanova is likely out for the season after breaking his wrist while on a rehab assignment in Triple-A Toledo.

Who's hot: Kansas City's Jose Offerman, who extended his hitting streak to 25 games with two hits, including a solo homer. Who's not: The Minnesota Twins, 11-15 since the All-Star break and riding a five-game losing streak.

On deck: Two of the majors' winningest pitchers this season square off in Texas. Pedro Martinez (15-3) pitches for the Red Sox against the Rangers' Rick Helling (14-6).
