Hot corner

August 10, 1998

Quote: "I had to bounce back and I did. Mentally, it's tough to come back from something like that, but I gave my guys chance today." -- Mike Oquist of the Athletics, who allowed one earned run over 5 2/3 innings after giving up 14 in five innings against the Yankees in his previous start.

It's a fact: Mike Timlin leads the Mariners with nine saves, the lowest team-leading total in the AL.

Who's hot: The Yankees have led in 38 consecutive games since June 28 against the Mets.

Who's not: Third baseman Ed Sprague committed his 22nd error, increasing the Athletics' league-leading total to 112.

On deck: The Angels' Jack McDowell, on the disabled list because of a stress reaction in his right elbow, will make a rehab start today in San Antonio.
