Hot corner American League

September 24, 1998

Quote: "It was low and he golfed it. What pitch can't he hit out?" -- Athletics catcher A. J. Hinch on Ken Griffey's 55th home run Tuesday night.

It's a fact: Ben Grieve's second-inning single Tuesday night gave him the Oakland record for most hits by a rookie. He broke the record of 161 hits by Mark McGwire in 1986.

Who's hot: The Red Sox's Mo Vaughn has a 12-game hitting streak.

Who's not: The Angels have lost seven of nine games and 11 of 16.

On deck: The Rangers' Juan Gonzalez has 46 doubles, leaving him three behind the club record by Rafael Palmeiro in 1991.
