Hot corner

August 12, 1999

Quote: "The guys that made outs off of Wade Boggs, they came back and I said, `A Hall of Famer got you out. Don't let it bother you. Just don't tell anybody it was a hitter.' " -- Orioles manager Ray Miller, after third baseman's relief appearance Tuesday.

It's a fact: The Mariners' 4-3 win over the White Sox on Tuesday night was just the Mariners' third win in 53 games when trailing after eight innings.

Who's hot: The Royals' Mike Sweeney hit a home run and extended his hitting streak to 23 games.

Who's not: Red Sox shortstop Nomar Garciaparra, whose 0-for-8 in the first two games of the Royals series dropped his league-leading average from .362 to .354, was given the day off.

On deck: Indians right-hander Steve Karsay will make his first start of the season Saturday against the Orioles.
