AL hot corner

September 13, 2000

Quote: "It's nice to have him on our side. Sure, he's got some holes, but if you make a mistake against him, it's not a single. He can light it up for a while if he gets going." - Yankees manager Joe Torre on Jose Canseco, who went 3-for-3 and hit his 446th career homer as New York routed Toronto, 10-2.

It's a fact: Magglio Ordonez's two homers last night allowed the White Sox to tie the club record of 198 set in 1998.

Who's hot: The Martinez brothers - Ramon and Pedro - are a combined 26-11 this season for the Red Sox. The rest of Boston's starters are 27-36.

Who's not: The Blue Jays' Tony Batista, who has 38 home runs, was hitless in four at-bats last night, leaving him in a 6-for-70 slump.

On deck: The Mariners' Rickey Henderson needs one run to tie Babe Ruth and Hank Aaron for second place on the career list of runs scored with 2,174; Ty Cobb is first with 2,246.
