Hot corner

September 06, 1998

Quote: "I don't think guys are making plans for the playoffs. I think guys are thinking about playing good baseball, driving runs in and having a good finish, and if you do that, you never know what could happen." -- Darrin Fletcher of the Blue Jays, who moved within six games of the wild-card-leading Red Sox.

It's a fact: The Blue Jays stopped stretching before the game to watch Mark McGwire hit his 60th home run on SkyDome's Jumbotron. His former Bash Brothers teammate, Jose Canseco, shook his head in amazement.

Who's hot: Blue Jays pitchers have allowed only seven runs in the past six games.

Who's not: The Tigers are the only team in the majors that hasn't won more than three straight games this season.

On deck: The Yankees must go 17-6 the rest of the way to better the major-league record of 116 wins, set by the 1906 Cubs.
