Hot corner

August 16, 1998

Quote: "I had all three [pitches] working, good velocity, good movement and good location. But once the K's are mounting up, you don't really realize it because you're losing the ballgame." -- Blue Jays' Roger Clemens, who struck out 15 and left a 2-2 tie.

It's a fact: The Mariners' Bill Swift is 3-6 pitching with five days' rest. He's 7-0 with a normal four days between starts.

Who's hot: Last season, the Yankees lost their 30th game on June 16, their 67th game.

Who's not: The Yankees' Hideki Irabu was 6-2 with a 1.68 ERA in his first 11 starts. In his 11 starts since, he's 5-4 with a 5.65 ERA and averaging 5 2/3 innings per start.

On deck: The Yankees' David Wells goes for his 16th victory today.
