Hot corner

September 14, 1998

Quote: "Yeah, I'd be nervous if I was a fan." -- Steve Avery of the Red Sox, whose wild-card lead has dropped to three.

It's a fact: Jeff Branson's six pinch hits are the most by an Indians player since Jerry Browne had 11 in 1991.

Who's hot: The Athletics' Jason Giambi has reached base in his past 29 games.

Who's not: Since moving a season-high 26 games over .500 on Aug. 26, the Red Sox are 5-12.

On deck: The Rangers' Aaron Sele (18-10) and the Red Sox's Pedro Martinez (18-5) go for their 19th victories tonight.
