Hot corner

May 27, 1999

Quote: "If one guy doesn't get you, the other guy will."

-- Twins manager Tom Kelly, whose club gave up a grand slam to Seattle's Edgar Martinez after an intentional walk to major-league home run leader Ken Griffey.

It's a fact: The Yankees' Derek Jeter has reached base by hit or walk in all 44 games this season -- the longest streak by a Yankee since at least 1961.

Who's hot: Since coming off the DL, Seattle's Alex Rodriguez is hitting .395 (19-for-48) with five doubles, six homers, 11 RBIs and 19 runs scored in 12 games.

Who's not: The Tigers' Willie Blair has allowed 37 earned runs in his past 25 1/3 innings, a 13.16 ERA. The Twins' LaTroy Hawkins fell to 1-7 with an 8.73 ERA.

On deck: Roger Clemens (3-0) faces Boston tonight, the fifth time he has pitched against his former team but the first time he has done so as a Yankee.
