Hot corner

June 01, 1999

Quote: "I think it was important for us to win because we'd lost the last three. But if we lost, we weren't going to jump off the Triboro Bridge." -- Indians manager Mike Hargrove

It's a fact: Left-handed hitters are 13-for-60 against Indians right-handed reliever Steve Karsay, with four walks and 16 strikeouts; righty hitters are also 13-for-60 against him, also with four walks and 16 strikeouts.

Who's hot: The Red Sox were 20-8 in May, their best May since going 21-7 in 1986, the year of their last World Series appearance.

Who's not: The Blue Jays are 12-24 since starting the season 12-4.

On deck: The Indians, with baseball's best record, get a shot at stopping Roger Clemens and his AL-record 19-game winning streak tonight.
