AL hot corner

July 03, 2000

Quote: "I was happy it was Mac Suzuki because I knew at least one Japanese pitcher would probably get a win today." - Tigers pitcher Hideo Nomo, who started against the Royals' Suzuki, who lives about 20 miles from him in Japan

It's a fact: The Twins' Denny Hocking has made just two errors while playing six positions (second, third, shortstop and all three outfield spots).

Who's hot: Magglio Ordonez hit .488 (20-for-41) with five homers and 17 RBIs on the White Sox's 13-game homestand.

Who's not: Since winning consecutive 1-0 decisions over Pedro Martinez and Orlando Hernandez, the Devil Rays' Steve Trachsel is 3-6 in 10 starts.

On deck: Yankees second baseman Chuck Knoblauch, out with an ear infection, could return tomorrow.
