Hot corner

August 06, 1999

Quote: "Top to bottom -- every player, every position -- this is the best team I've had in eight years as a manager. But where we'll end up. I don't know."

-- Rangers manager Johnny Oates, on his team's run for the postseason

It's a fact: With the best home record (37-17) in baseball, the Athletics have the lowest average home attendance (17,112) in the AL.

Who's hot: Yankees' Bernie Williams got two of his four hits last night against the Mariners' Jamie Moyer and is now 23-for-47 (.489) against him.

Who's not: Red Sox's Nomar Garciaparra, who entered last night with a major league-leading .368 average, did not hit a ball out of the infield in his three at-bats against Angels' Chuck Finley and is 1-for-11 lifetime against him.

On deck: Mariners' Jeff Fassero shoots for just his fifth victory of the season against Orlando Hernandez and the Yankees.
