Hot corner

April 30, 1999

Quote: "Boggs' ball was a home run. It hit the foul pole. I heard a big `clang.' Usually you expect Wade Boggs to punch one in front of you

-- White Sox's Jeff Abbott who fielded Bogg's wind-whipped, two-run double in the sixth inning.

It's a fact: When Fred McGriff hit his first-ever homer at new Comiskey Park on Wednesday night, it gave him homers in 33 parks, tying the major-league record shared by the Giants' Ellis Burks and the Cubs' Gary Gaetti.

Who's hot: Kenny Lofton went 2-for-4 to raise his average to .388.

Who's not: Oakland's Ben Grieve, the AL rookie of the year last season, is hitting .136 and is in a 3-for-30 slump. He did not start yesterday's game against the Indians.

On deck: Andy Pettitte, a 16-game winner for New York last year, tries for his first victory of the season, when the Yankees visit the Kansas City Royals tonight.
