Hot corner

August 29, 1998

Quote: "I get a lot of fun out of winning the game in general. Now, in the last month of the season, it's pressure-packed. You've got to win every game. But this is also the fun part." -- Will Clark of the Rangers, whose 10th-inning homer won the first game of the doubleheader.

It's a fact: Comedian Billy Crystal threw out the ceremonial first ball at Yankee Stadium and imitated Orlando Hernandez's high leg kick.

Who's hot: The Angels' Tim Salmon is hitting .437 in his past 24 games.

Who's not: The Tigers have been outscored, 121-57, in the first inning this season.

On deck: The Angels' Jack McDowell (3-2) faces the Red Sox's Pedro Martinez (17-4) in a matchup of Cy Young Award winners -- and the AL West leaders and the wild-card leaders.
