Hot corner

September 01, 1998

Quote: "I'm just here to play tonight's game and the rest of the season and hopefully well into October." -- Joey Cora, after being traded from the last-place Mariners to the playoff-bound Indians.

It's a fact: The Blue Jays enter September five wins short of their 1997 total of 76. They ended last August with 65.

Who's hot: The Indians' Manny Ramirez has hit in all seven games on the homestand, going 14-for-27 (.519) with four homers and 16 RBIs.

Who's not: The Tigers were 8-22 in August and have dropped 15 of their past 18 home games.

On deck: More than half of the Angels' September games are on the road, including a seven-game, three-city trip.
