Hot corner

September 25, 1999

Quote: "I kind of looked up at the board like an idiot when I went out there, got a little nervous and I guess the nerves got the best of me."

-- Twins rookie Joe Mays, who lost his perfect game in the sixth

It's a fact: The Twins are still capitalizing on Eric Milton's no-hitter by pushing unsold tickets and game programs for $10.

Who's hot: The Indians passed the AL record of 11 slams in a season. The Mariners and Orioles each had 11 in 1996.

Who's not: White Sox rookie Aaron Myette has allowed 25 base runners in 9 2/3 innings. His ERA is 8.38.

On deck: Last night's game drew 39,030 fans, and the remaining three games must average 33,222 for Detroit to draw 2 million for its final season in Tiger Stadium.
