Quote: "It was an exciting moment not only for me but for everyone. I'm trying to help us win ballgames. I'm only human. I put my head down and never quit." - Detroit slugger Juan Gonzalez, on hitting the game- winning, two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth inning against Cleveland yesterday.

It's a fact: The Blue Jays have homered in a club-record 16 consecutive games.

Who's hot: The Orioles' Albert Belle has six homers and 16 RBIs in his past four games.

Who's not: The injury-riddled Indians have lost six games in a row after yesterday's 8-6 loss to the Tigers.

On deck: The White Sox, with the best record in major-league baseball, look to sweep their four- game series against the Yankees today.
