Hot corner

September 27, 1999

Quote: "Everyone was on me for staying on 99 for a while. They were wondering if I would ever get it." -- Derek Jeter, whose double yesterday gave him 100 RBIs, just the second Yankees shortstop in history with 100 or more RBIs.

It's a fact: The Rangers are the seventh team in major-league history to have six players with at least 20 homers.

Who's hot: The White Sox's Greg Norton is hitting .414 (29-for-70) with eight doubles, three home runs and 14 RBIs in his past 20 games.

Who's not: The Twins' LaTroy Hawkins, who has lost seven of his past nine decisions, gave up five runs -- four earned -- and five hits in one-plus innings of a 13-4 loss to the White Sox on Saturday night.

On deck: The Rangers, fresh off clinching their second straight AL West title yesterday, are home to Seattle tonight.
