Hot corner

April 20, 1999

Quote: "I started my career here. It's always been a challenge to finally get one into the net." -- Devils Rays catcher John Flaherty, drafted by the Red Sox 11 years ago, on hitting his first homer over the Green Monster.

It's a fact: The Mariners have used 63 different left fielders since 1989, including five this season.

Who's hot: The Athletics' Jason Giambi has homered in four straight games, during which he is hitting .500 (10-for-20).

Who's not: The Rangers' Juan Gonzalez has gone 13 games without a homer, his longest drought to start a season. The longest he went between homers in 1998 was 10 games.

On deck: The Tigers' Tony Clark needs two homers to reach 100 in his career.
