Hot corner

May 04, 1999

Quote: "Anytime you take a convoluted road trip like this and come out 7-4, I think you've got to be happy." -- Indians manager Mike Hargrove, whose team completed an 11-game, three-time-zone trip

It's a fact: The Mariners went through eight shortstops in April. They need two more to tie the one-season record set by the 1944 Dodgers.

Who's hot: The Indians' 17-6 start equals the best start in the 99-year history of the franchise after 23 games. The 1966 team started 19-6 and finished 81-81.

Who's not: In four starts away from Tiger Stadium, Willie Blair has given up 25 runs -- 24 earned -- in 14 1/3 innings.

On deck: Angels manager Terry Collins is expected to switch Mo Vaughn, who has been the DH since coming back from a sprained left ankle, back to first base by this weekend.
