Hot corner

May 18, 2000

Quote: "Today I just felt I wasn't going to get beat. Even when I had two strikes, I knew I could get the bat on the ball and put it in play."- Rangers first baseman Frank Catalanotto after going 5-for-5 against the Devil Rays.

It's a fact: The Devil Rays are 0-9 against left-handed starters.

Who's hot: The Royals' Carlos Beltran is 5-for-10 since ending a drought of 24 at-bats without a hit Monday night.

Who's not: The top four batters in the White Sox order were 0-for-26 in the series before Magglio Ordonez's homer in the sixth.

On deck: Third baseman John Valentin, out with tendinitis in his left knee, is back in Boston and is expected to come off the disabled list for the Red Sox's home game with the Tigers Friday night.
