Hot corner

August 18, 1999

Quote: "Once you spend a lot of time in the minor leagues, you get labeled a Triple-A player."

-- 27-year-old Red Sox Rookie of the Year candidate Brian Daubach, who spent nine years in the minors

It's a fact: The Mariners' Ken Griffey hit his 14th career homer at SkyDome. Only Cecil Fielder and Jose Canseco, who each hit 16, have more homers as an opponent at SkyDome.

Who's hot: The A's have homered in 18 consecutive games.

Who's not: Blue Jays starters have given up 28 earned runs in 22 innings over the past five games.

On deck: Fred McGriff is three home runs shy of joining Devil Rays teammate Canseco as the only players to have 30-homer seasons with four different teams.
