AL hot corner

September 01, 2000

Quote: "We've been playing bad, but we haven't played awful. I think the best time for something like this to happen to you is August, not September." - Seattle shortstop Alex Rodriguez, on the Mariners' 3-14 finish in August.

It's a fact: Toronto's four homers Wednesday tied a franchise record for one season and lifted its majors-leading total to 221.

Who's hot: Toronto's Dave Martinez has a career-best 20-game hit streak - all 20 he has been a Blue Jay.

Who's not: Kansas City reliever Jerry Spradlin was released Wednesday, shortly after giving up three runs without retiring a batter in the ninth inning.

On deck: Oakland at Toronto (7:05 p.m.), important for both in the wild-card race.
