Hot corner

August 25, 1998

Quote: "I haven't been walking myself into trouble. I used to try to throw every pitch as hard as I could, and sometimes you wind up putting men on base." -- Angels' Jack McDowell, who won his second straight start since coming off the disabled list.

It's a fact: The Mariners, who lead the majors with 193 homers, are finally .500 (49-49) when going deep.

Who's hot: The Blue Jays' Jose Cruz Jr. has an 18-game hitting streak.

Who's not: The White Sox's Frank Thomas went 5-for-30 on the road trip with three bases-empty homers and a triple.

On deck: Mariners catcher Dan Wilson, on the DL since July 20 (torn ankle ligaments) said he expects to play on the team's coming nine-game road trip.
