AL hot corner

September 21, 2000

Quote: "This is probably the biggest game I've pitched in. You know that you've got to be at the top of your game to beat this guy." - Cleveland's Steve Woodard, after beating Pedro Martinez and the Boston Red Sox yesterday.

It's a fact: Nomar Garciaparra hit his 50th double of the season, putting him one behind Wade Boggs and Joe Cronin for third place in Red Sox history. Earl Webb has 67 and Tris Speaker is second with 53.

Who's hot: Cleveland's Manny Ramirez extended his streak of reaching base via a hit or walk to 45 games, the longest current streak in the league.

Who's not: The New York Yankees have lost five of their last six games.

On deck: The wild-card race continues today as Cleveland and Boston play another day-night doubleheader at Fenway Park.
