Hot corner

August 31, 1998

Quote: "I'm very happy to get this win because I've been hanging with the 11s for a while." -- Rolando Arrojo of the Devil Rays, who was 11-11 before beating the Tigers yesterday.

It's a fact: Last Wednesday, Yankees utility player Homer Bush hit a home run. David Vincent, home-run historian extraordinaire, reports that it was the first homer by a Homer since May 30, 1952, when Homer "Dixie" Howell hit one off Turk Lown.

Who's hot: In his past 50 games, Albert Belle is batting .385 (75-for-195) with 22 homers and 54 RBIs.

Who's not: Angels catcher Phil Nevin has 14 hits in his past 84 at-bats (.167).

On deck: The Royals need to win three of their remaining 25 games to match their 1997 total of 67.
