Hot corner

August 30, 1998

Quote: "I just wanted to go out there and just make my pitches and get some outs. I didn't expect to be sharp and I wasn't." -- Dave Stieb of the Blue Jays, who won for the first time since 1993.

It's a fact: The Yankees are 114 games over .500(286-172) since 1996.

Who's hot: The Rangers' Rusty Greer is batting .396 (23-for-58) with four homers and 15 RBIs in his past 14 games.

Who's not: The Twins' Brad Radke has lost five straight decisions and has allowed 36 runs and 59 hits over 37 1/3 -plus innings.

On deck: The Blue Jays' Roger Clemens (16-6), coming off an 18-strikeout, 3-0 win over the Royals, looks to win his major-league-leading 12th consecutive decision today.
