Hot corner

July 23, 1999

Quote: "I called Brad [Ausmus, catcher] out. I said, `I'm kind of hoping you'll make this decision for me.' Brad called for the fastball." -- Todd Jones, Tigers closer, who needed a bit of advice to get Royals batter Johnny Damon out in the ninth and preserve a 9-8 victory.

It's a fact: The Devil Rays have used the disabled list 21 times this season, most in the majors.

Who's hot: The Blue Jays' Shawn Green extended his career-high hitting streak to 20 games with a double against the Indians.

Who's not: The Mariners' Ken Griffey, 0-for-5 last night, is 7-for-30 with one homer and three RBIs in eight games at Safeco Field.

On deck: Yankees starter David Cone (10-4) comes off the 14th perfect game in modern baseball history. He faces the AL-Central leading Indians and former teammate Dwight Gooden.
