July 29, 2000

Quote: "He had pop on his fastball. He was sneaky and had good command of both sides of the plate." Royals manager Tony Muser on the Devils Rays' Bryan Rekar, who pitched a complete-game, 10-3 win in Kansas City last night.

It's a fact: Jorge Posada's 17th home run for the Yankees tied his career high, set in 1998.

Who's hot: The Rangers' eight-run third inning was their biggest since an eight-run outburst on Sept. 25, 1999, against Oakland.

Who's not: Kansas City is 2-6 at home since the All-Star break and 25-25 at home this season.

On deck: Barring a collapse, the White Sox will set a club record for consecutive days in first place if they can hold their lead the rest of the season. They have been atop the AL Central for the past 101 days, with 65 days remaining. The club mark is 134 days - by the 1919 "Black Sox."
