FIRST BASEMinnesota's Kent Hrbek delivered a big 2-run single in the final game of the American League Championship Series, but he had just 3 hits in 21 ALCS at-bats (.143). He's still Kent Hrbek, but may have trouble breaking out against Atlanta's tough left-handers. Sid Bream, who had 3 hits and 3 RBI in 10 at-bats during the NL playoffs, has been platooning with Brian Hunter, but he probably will play every game against the entirely right-handed Twins rotation.Advantage: Twins.

Quote: "The more I get caught up in long ball the less I hit it." -- Tony Clark of the Tigers, who hit 34 homers last year, after his first homer in 75 at-bats over 23 gamesIt's a fact: Blue Jays outfielder Shawn Green, a left-handed hitter, uses a black Louisville Slugger against left-handed pitchers and a tan Rawlings bat against right-handers. Both are 34 inches long and weigh 32 ounces, but Green says he can tell the difference.Who's hot: The Blue Jays' Tony Fernandez has hit safely in 10 of his past 11 games, going 20 of 42 during that stretch.
