Hot corner

June 04, 2000

Quote: "I didn't know what the ruling was. I thought it was an out. I couldn't believe it, but I guess that work in the weight room has paid off." - Astros' Mitch Meluskey, whose foul near the third base line yesterday became the first ball to hit the roof at Enron Field. Though it was caught by White Sox pitcher Kip Wells, it was ruled a dead ball.

It's a fact: Toronto's Darrin Fletcher hit three grand slams in his first nine major-league seasons. In 41 games this season, he's matched that total, one of them coming against the Orioles' Jason Johnson on May 8.

Who's hot: Athletics reliever Jason Isringhausen got three outs against the Giants yesterday for his 13th save in 16 chances.

Who's not: The 10 walks the Brewers gave up against the Rockies yesterday raised their league-high total to 287.

On deck: The White Sox' Frank Thomas needs to score one run to become the sixth active player with 300 home runs, 1,000 runs scored, 1,000 RBIs and 1,000 walks.
