Hot corner

April 17, 1999

Quote: "I don't want to use [the days between] as an excuse, but it's kind of difficult to pitch when you've had eight days off." -- Red Sox starter Tim Wakefield, who lasted three innings, giving up three runs. It's a fact: The Devil Rays' Jose Canseco has as many hits, seven, as RBIs this season.

Who's hot: The Devil Rays' Kevin Stocker, who bats ninth, is hitting .441.

Who's not: The Indians' Dwight Gooden, who lasted two-thirds of an inning in his only start, keeps having his next start pushed back by rainouts.

On deck: Mariners rookie Freddy Garcia, acquired from the Astros as part of the Randy Johnson deal, seeks to improve to 3-0 today against the Angels.
