Hot corner

May 12, 2000

Quote: "I know one thing, I can't take it all year like this. With this ballclub, I'm throwing up one inning and the next I'm doing jumping jacks because I'm so excited."- Texas manager Johnny Oates, whose team had three come-from-behind victories during its most recent six-game homestand.

It's a fact: The Athletics, who had the best home record in the majors last season (52-29), just completed an 8-4 road trip.

Who's hot: The Rangers' David Segui is 23-for-52 (.442) during his 13-game hitting streak and has raised his average 40 points to .387.

Who's not: The Tigers matched its worst 32-game start in 80 years with a 6-0 loss to Kansas City on Wednesday, dropping the Tigers to 9-23. Detroit teams posted the same record in 1920, 1925, 1952 and 1953.

On deck: The Yankees and Roger Clemens (3-2), going for his 251st win to tie Hall of Famer Bob Gibson for 38th on the career list, make their first visit to Comerica Park in Detroit.
