Hot corner

June 07, 2000

Quote: "If it goes out, it goes out. I ain't up there trying to be a McGwire or anything. I know my role is to get on base and let guys drive me in." - Cardinals' J.D. Drew after ending a homer drought extending to May 8 by hitting two last night as St. Louis beat Kansas City, 5-4.

It's a fact: Florida's Luis Castillo leads the majors in stolen bases with 25.

Who's hot: The Tigers' Juan Gonzalez has hit in 15 of his past 18 games and has 13 RBIs in that stretch.

Who's not: Florida manager John Boles indicated that Alex Gonzalez, who hit .277 and played in last year's All-Star Game, will no longer be the team's starting shortstop. Gonzalez is hitting .163, the lowest average among regulars in the major leagues, and has a .202 on-base percentage, also the worst in the majors.

On deck: The Cubs are on pace to reach the 100-million mark in all-time attendance before the All-Star break.
