AL hot corner

July 21, 2000

Quote: "When you play the world champions, you want to show up and perform the best you can. Maybe subconsciously we play a little better against that class of team." - Tigers closer Todd Jones, who recorded his 26th save.

It's a fact: Yankees' Andy Pettitte has started on three days' rest three times in the past three weeks. He is 1-2 with a 2.01 ERA in those games.

Who's hot: Tigers second baseman Damion Easley has a 99-game errorless streak at second base.

Who's not: Tigers outfielder Rick Becker went 0-for-5 with five strikeouts - four looking - in Yankees series.

On deck: Twins third base coach Ron Gardenhire has filled in at manager and bench coach Paul Molitor has filled in as third-base coach for eight games while manager Tom Kelly is in Fort Myers, Fla., where his father is recovering from heart bypass surgery.
