Hot corner

June 27, 1999

Quote: "This is a place I came to a lot when I was young. Every time we played Wiffle ball, I was Kirk Gibson or Darrell Evans or somebody on the Tigers."

-- Twins pitcher Joe Mays, who grew up a Tigers fan in nearby Flint, after getting his first major-league victory at Tiger Stadium

It's a fact: The Mariners are 6-9 in one-run decisions. Only the Tigers, with four, have fewer one-run victories in the majors.

Who's hot: The Red Sox's Nomar Garciaparra has a 12-game hitting streak.

Who's not: The White Sox's James Baldwin has given up 14 earned runs in his past 5 2/3 innings, boosting his ERA to 6.35.

On deck: The Athletics' Kenny Rogers, undefeated at home, looks for his first road win of the season today at Anaheim.
