Hot corner

May 03, 2000


"I saw more base runners out there in a one-hitter than I think I've ever seen in my life." -- Rangers manager Johnny Oates, after Rick Helling gave up one hit in 7 1/3 innings but walked six and hit one

It's a fact: Texas hit into double plays in five consecutive innings starting in the third.

Who's hot: Indians catcher Einar Diaz has thrown out five of the past six base stealers.

Who's not: Tampa Bay has drawn 15,464 or fewer in five of its past seven home games.

On deck: Indians No. 1 starter Bartolo Colon, on the 15-day DL since April 16 with a pulled muscle in his rib cage, will throw on the side today and will make a minor-league rehab start next week.
