Hot corner

September 17, 1998

Quote: "I was saying after the game [Monday] that he hadn't done much against us this year. The guys said, 'Don't say that. Don't wake him up.' What does he do? He puts on a show." -- Twins' Matt Lawton after the Mariners' Ken Griffey went 4-for-6 with his AL-leading 52nd homer and five RBIs to lead Seattle to a 12-7 win Tuesday.

It's a fact: The Tigers' Bobby Higginson was the last major-leaguer to homer in four straight at-bats, on June 30 and July 1, 1997.

Who's hot: The Twins' Paul Molitor has hit in 15 straight games.

Who's not: The Tigers' Brian Powell (3-8) has lost five of his last six decisions.

On deck: Third baseman Corey Koskie, one of the young players the Twins are counting on in the future, is 1-for-12 since he was called up Sept. 8.
