Hot corner

June 12, 2000

Quote: "The Cleveland series is big, but there's something about this one. Two major-league teams in the same city. It's kind of like a high school game." - White Sox's Paul Konerko, on playing the Cubs

It's a fact: Jose Valentin's 11 home runs are the most for a White Sox shortstop since Ron Hansen hit 11 in 1965.

Who's hot: The Pirates' Warren Morris went 9-for-12 in his past two games.

Who's not: Mariners pinch hitters are batting .111 (4-for-36) and are hitless in their past 15 at-bats with two walks and a sacrifice fly since May 27.

On deck: The White Sox, with the AL's best record, face the Indians and Yankees this week.
