Angels: In Tuesday's game against Detroit, Ken Hill hit three batters, one short of the club and AL record.

Blue Jays: Toronto, which has eight players on the disabled list, flew up one of its trainers from its Florida camp to help head trainer Tommy Craig. The Blue Jays normally have two trainers, but one of them is in Seattle with catcher Darrin Fletcher, who was unable to fly to Toronto after fracturing two bones around his right eye last week.

Royals: Kansas City took a 6-0 record at Tropicana Field into last night's game against the Devil Rays.

Tigers: Detroit increased its team batting average 13 points during the 11-game road trip which ended Monday night. The average went from .235 to .248.

Twins: After allowing four earned runs in his first 3 1/3 innings, Rookie Mike Lincoln has given up 11 in his last 27 (3.67 ERA) heading into last night.

Yankees: Chuck Knoblauch bruised his left big toe and came out after the seventh inning of Tuesday's game against Minnesota. He did not start last night and is day-to-day. Knoblauch, who was booed heavily in Minnesota, is 9-for-51 (.176) against his former club. Derek Jeter doubled in the eighth Tuesday to extend his streak of reaching base safely to 25 games, the Yankees' longest streak to start a season since Dave Winfield's 29-game streak in 1988.
