Hot corner

August 21, 1998

Quote: "Salmon takes the bait." -- Chicago White Sox announcer Tom Paciorek, after the Angels' Tim Salmon struck out looking at a called strike.

It's a fact: The Red Sox's Mo Vaughn is 0-12 lifetime against the Royals' Hipolito Pichardo. He was 0-for-1 against him with a walk and a run scored yesterday.

Who's hot: The Royals' Jose Offerman has hit safely in 36 of his last 39 games.

Who's not: The Mariners' Ken Griffey is 2-for-21 (.095) in his career against the Blue Jays' Pat Hentgen.

On deck: The Yankees' David Wells tries to win his 16th game, and the Rangers try to stay in the playoff race.
