Hot corner

April 30, 2000

Quote: "I think a little reality set in that eight or nine runs aren't going to be on the board every night, even though this offense is capable of that." -- White Sox pitcher Cal Eldred, who shut down the Tigers, 2-1

It's a fact: With 10 strikeouts in his last start, Chuck Finley became the first Indians pitcher since Sam McDowell in 1970 to strike out 10 or more in three straight starts.

Who's hot: The Yankees' Derek Jeter has reached base in 21 of his 22 games.

Who's not: The Tigers have lost 11 of 12.

On deck: The Tigers will honor Sparky Anderson with a special day today, during which they are expected to retire his No. 11.
