AL hot corner

September 18, 2000

Quote: "It was good to see Carlos come out of it. Hopefully, now that he's hit his 40th, he can get hot ... hotter." - Toronto manager Jim Fregosi on slugger Carlos Delgado hitting his 40th homer yesterday.

It's a fact: Pedro and Ramon Martinez are a combined 27-12. The rest of the Red Sox starters are 27-37.

Who's hot: Detroit closer Todd Jones picked up his team-record 39th save in 42 chances, breaking the old mark of 38 set by John Hiller in 1973.

Who's not: Arundel High graduate Denny Neagle gave up eight runs and eight hits in 2 1/3 innings.

On deck: Cleveland and Boston will play five games in three days starting tomorrow night at Fenway Park.
