Hot corner

April 13, 1999

Quote: "It was really nice to be a part of this. To win the last home opener in Tiger Stadium is something special." -- Twins starter and Maryland alumnus Eric Milton

It's a fact: If the fences seem closer at Anaheim's Edison Field, it's because they are. The fence in center, 408 feet from home last year, is now 400 feet away, and the power alley in left center is 387, down from 396.

Who's hot: The Indians are hitting .366 (90-for-246) during their six-game winning streak.

Who's not: Todd Greene, playing behind the plate for the first time since Aug. 20, 1997, overthrew second base by about 50 feet when the Rangers' Tom Goodwin stole second in the first.

On deck: Andy Pettitte, who struck out eight in five shutout innings for Single-A Tampa, could pitch for the Yankees on Saturday.
