Hot corner

May 03, 1999

Quote: "I thought I hit it well enough to go out of Yellowstone. How does a baseball go in there and stay in there?" -- Jose Canseco of the Devil Rays, who hit a catwalk suspended from the Tropicana Field roof and got a ground-rule double instead of a homer.

It's a fact: The Athletics' Miguel Tejada hit into an unusual 1-5-2-6-3 double play. There were rundowns between third and home, and between first and second.

Who's hot: The Blue Jays' Shannon Stewart had his league-leading 12th multi-hit game and AL-leading 12th steal.

Who's not: The A's are last in the AL in batting (.246) and lead the league with 26 errors.

On deck: The Red Sox's Bret Saberhagen, bothered by a muscle strain in the back of his shoulder, will make his scheduled start Thursday.
