Hot Corner

June 21, 1999

Quote: "It's close to impossible to hit him."

-- Juan Gonzalez of the Rangers on Red Sox ace Pedro Martinez.

It's a fact: The Angels' Troy Percival allowed his first run ever against the Yankees, after limiting them to four hits in 21 1/3 innings. Who's hot: The Athletics' Ben Grieve has multiple RBIs in four of his past seven games and 16 RBIs in his past 20 games.

Who's not: The Rangers were held under four runs for the eighth consecutive game and have lost six of nine.

On deck: Ramon Martinez, coming off shoulder surgery, is scheduled to make his first rehab start today for Lowell, the Red Sox's Single-A affiliate.
