Hot corner

September 09, 1998

Quote: "He was as good as he's been all season. That's encouraging to see that in September he gets his second wind." -- Yankees catcher Joe Girardi, on David Cone, who won his 19th after failing three times.

It's a fact: In 17 appearances since the trade of Randy Myers on Aug. 6, reliever Paul Quantrill of the Blue Jays is 2-0 with five saves and a 1.56 ERA in 17 appearances.

Who's hot: The Rangers' Juan Gonzalez is hitting .435 (34-for-78) with seven homers and 29 RBIs in his 19-game hitting streak.

Who's not: The Indians are 29-29 since the All-Star break, with four losing streaks of three games or more.

On deck: Woody Williams of the Blue Jays, who has won once in his past eight outings but beat the Indians in consecutive starts in May, faces them tonight.
