Hot corner

September 26, 1998

Quote: "You do that as a kid when you're 5 years old. You know: Bottom of the ninth, two outs, bases loaded. What are you going to do?" -- Twins rookie Doug Mientkiewicz, who drove in the winning run with a bases-loaded walk.

It's a fact: The Yankees are 64 games over .500 for the first time since the end of the 1927 season (110-44).

Who's hot: Todd Zeile set a Rangers record by reaching base safely in 11 consecutive plate appearances.

Who's not: The Indians are hitting .246 with runners in scoring position since the All-Star break.

On deck: The Yankees' David Cone (19-7) goes for his 20th win today.
