Hot corner American League

September 25, 1998

Quote: "An avalanche. The final scores just blew my mind away." -- Angels' Gary DiSarcina after Anaheim was outscored, 25-3, in three games against the Rangers.

It's a fact: The Yankees are just the second team in major-league history to have six players with at least 10 homers and 10 stolen bases. The 1991 Cincinnati Reds are the other.

Who's hot: Blue Jays right-hander Kelvim Escobar has won five his past six starts and has allowed three earned runs or fewer in each of his 10 starts since leaving the bullpen.

Who's not: The Angels have lost 10 of their past 13, including five straight against Texas.

On deck: Royals third baseman Dean Palmer needs two homers to match the team record of 36 set by Steve Balboni in 1985.
