Hot corner

August 22, 1999

Quote: "We have good pitching. The consensus around the nation is that we don't, but I think we have a great pitching staff. People are always saying that we need this and we need that. Well, we're not in first place because it's luck." -- Indians' Dave Burba

It's a fact: The Indians had their fifth shutout of the year and the Mariners were shut out for the fifth time.

Who's hot: The Mariners surpassed 1 million in attendance in their 23rd game at Safeco.

Who's not: The Royals' Chad Kreuter is hitless in 23 at-bats.

On deck: Tim Wakefield, who has been filling in for injured Red Sox closer Tom Gordon, starts today against the AL West-leading Rangers.
