Hot corner

September 02, 1998

Quote: "There's never a good time to change the flat tires, but sometimes you do what is best at the time, and that's what we thought we did today." -- Tigers president John McHale, on the firing of manager Buddy Bell.

It's a fact: The Blue Jays' league-leading double-play total reached 153 with a 3-6-3 grounder off the bat of Carlos Delgado in the first.

Who's hot: The Indians' Joey Cora has an 18-game hitting streak.

Who's not: Derek Lowe's error was the 16th by a Red Sox pitcher this season, most in the AL.

On deck: Tigers batters have been hit by a pitch 56 times this season, five shy of the club record set in 1968.
