Hot corner

May 09, 1999

Quote: "I can understand striking out against Pedro Martinez. But eight times today -- that's ridiculous." -- Angels manager Terry Collins, whose team fanned 15 times Friday against the AL leader, then eight times yesterday against Juan Pena in his major-league debut

It's a fact: The Rangers' Rafael Palmeiro began play Thursday hitting an AL-high .434 for 66 at-bats against right-handers, and an AL-low .095 for 22 at-bats against left-handers.

Who's hot: In his past 23 plate appearances, the Devil Rays' Fred McGriff is 11-for-19 with three doubles, five homers and four walks.

Who's not: The Blue Jays' David Wells has given up 22 runs in his past four starts.

On deck: Fourteen of the Rangers' next 17 games are against teams from the AL East.
