Hot corner

May 13, 1999

Quote: "I'm a firm believer in pitching inside and pitching mean, but not to throw 95 miles per hour at somebody's head. It's a shame there's a DH. It's a shame he doesn't have to bat." -- Don Zimmer, Yankees interim manager, on Angels closer Troy Percival, who hit Derek Jeter in the left hand with a fastball in the ninth inning Tuesday.

It's a fact: The Mariners have not won a season series with the Red Sox since 1989.

Who's hot: Royals left fielder Johnny Damon tripled last night to extend his hitting streak to 16 games, the longest in the AL this season.

Who's not: Rolando Arrojo of the Devil Rays has given up 22 runs and 41 hits over 25 1/3 innings in five home starts. He's 1-4 with a 6.69 ERA overall.

On deck: Devil Rays third baseman Wade Boggs, on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring, has resumed batting practice. Boggs, who is 57 hits short of 3,000, is scheduled to get off the DL on May 21.
