Hot corner

September 05, 1998

Quote: "I didn't even know. I'm not a strikeout pitcher. I'm just trying to get them to hit balls on the ground." -- Indians' Charles Nagy, when informed he had reached 1,000 strikeouts.

It's a fact: Bret Saberhagen of the Red Sox hasn't walked a leadoff hitter who has scored. With everybody else, nearly 40 percent of leadoff walks score.

Who's hot: The Rangers' Juan Gonzalez has a 15-game hitting streak.

Who's not: Red Sox shortstop Nomar Garciaparra's error in the first was his fourth in the past 10 games, his 23rd of the season.

On deck: The Blue Jays' Roger Clemens goes for his 18th victory today against the Red Sox.
