AL hot corner

September 12, 2000

Quote: "The Red Sox have to come and get us. There will be pressure on them, but we have to get them, too. And that makes this series real interesting." - Cleveland manager Charlie Manuel on the fact that the Indians play the Red Sox 12 times in next 10 days starting tonight in Jacobs Field.

It's a fact: The Oakland Athletics, who had only four complete games in their first 138 games, entered play last night with three consecutive complete games.

Who's hot: Boston's Rolando Arrojo gave up only five hits in 7 1/3 innings last night.

Who's not: New York's Orlando Hernandez is only 3-8 at home this season.

On deck: Toronto looks to stay in the wild-card chase as it travels to New York to face Arundel High grad Denny Neagle and the Yankees.
