August 31, 1999

Quote: "A typical Seattle save. [Jose] Mesa gets the job done. He made it a little exciting at times."

-- Mariners manager Lou Piniella after Mesa, who pitched the ninth, struck out Frank Thomas with two on to end the game. It's a fact: The Mariners have used 13 rookie pitchers this season.

Who's hot: Yankees relievers are 4-1 with eight saves and a 1.60 ERA in their past 18 games.

Who's not: The Royals' Jeremy Giambi is hitless in his past 24 at-bats.

On deck: Ramon Martinez will make his first start of the season Thursday, joining younger brother Pedro in the Red Sox's starting rotation.
