Hot corner

June 17, 1999

Quote: "You sit over there and you watch that ball come out of his hands and you just drool."

-- Tom Kelly, Twins manager, on Red Sox ace Pedro Martinez

It's a fact: Nine pitchers have started for Seattle this season, equaling the number the Mariners used all last season.

Who's hot: The Indians' Manny Ramirez has homered in four of five games since returning from a three-game suspension.

Who's not: The Twins' Dan Perkins, who led all minor-league pitchers with 18 wins last season, lasted just three innings last night, falling to 1-4 with a 7.61 ERA.

On deck: The Blue Jays, 9-15 in their last 24 games at SkyDome, play 15 of their next 24 games at home.
