Hot corner

September 08, 1998

Quote: "If you can't get up to play these guys in a pennant race, you can't get up for anything." -- Mike Stanley of the Red Sox before the series opener with the Yankees.

It's a fact: The Red Sox's Mo Vaughn became the first batter hit by David Wells this season in 193 1/3 innings.

Who's hot: Juan Gonzalez extended his hitting streak to 18 games, longest by a Ranger this season.

Who's not: Tigers base runners have been successful on 26 of their past 48 stolen-base attempts.

On deck: Angels closer Troy Percival, resting for two games after feeling soreness in his right shoulder Friday night, will throw before today's game to see if he's ready to go again. Percival has 38 saves in 42 opportunities.
