Hot corner

May 01, 1999

Quote: "The first one is always going to be precious. I've got the ball in my pocket and I'll probably send it to my dad tomorrow." -- Tigers rookie Gabe Kapler, whose first major-league homer came in his 35th at-bat.

It's a fact: The Tigers (11-12) finished April under .500 for the sixth straight season.

Who's hot: Tigers rookie Jeff Weaver has given up just six runs in his four major-league starts.

Who's not: The Devil Rays' Albie Lopez has allowed six homers in 15 innings.

On deck: The Red Sox's Pedro Martinez goes for his fifth win today.
