Hot corner

July 12, 1999

Quote: "Personally, I'm glad it's over with. But if we meet again in October, then I'll get excited."

-- Manager Joe Torre, after the Yankees finished 3-3 in the Subway Series against the Mets

It's a fact: The Tigers are 1-6 in series finales against teams making their final visit to Tiger Stadium.

Who's hot: Since the 1998 All-Star Game, the Rockies' Larry Walker has batted .390 (189-for-484).

Who's not: The 28 homers given up by the Mariners' Jeff Fassero are two short of the major-league record for the most allowed before the All-Star break, set in 1986 by the Twins' Bert Blyleven and matched by Blyleven in 1987.

On deck: Braves right-hander John Smoltz, placed on the 15-day DL last Monday for the second time this season, will pitch an inning on a rehab assignment on Thursday with Double-A Greenville.
