Hot corner

August 19, 1998

Quote: "The weather was terrible for homers. When it's overcast, the ball doesn't really carry very well." -- Jason Giambi, who hit one of the Athletics' six homers.

It's a fact: Ten of Jose Canseco's past 29 hits have been homers.

Who's hot: Red Sox closer Tom Gordon has 33 consecutive saves and 36 in 37 attempts.

Who's not: The Devil Rays lost seven of 10 to the Indians and are 17-23 against the AL Central.

On deck: Rookie reliever Mike Buddie will make his second emergency start for the Yankees tonight against the Twins.
