Hot corner

July 31, 1999

Quote: "All the great moments in my career, the World Series-winning homer, the All-Star games, happened in Toronto. I couldn't have asked for a better place to play."

-- Joe Carter, who with Cito Gaston, had his name added to the Level of Excellence, the highest award bestowed by the Blue Jays

It's a fact: There have been 25 instances of consecutive home runs to start an AL game.

Who's hot: Since ending a five-game losing streak, the Indians have outscored the Tigers and White Sox a combined 37-11 in winning four in a row.

Who's not: The Tigers' Jeff Weaver lost his fourth straight decision and has not won in 11 starts since May 27.

On deck: Roger Clemens (9-4), playing his first game at Fenway in a Yankees uniform, faces Brian Rose (6-3), who is 2-0 against New York this year.
