Hot corner


Quote: "I had a Catfish Hunter night -- three solo shots with a lot of yardage. They were ready for me. You can't make mistakes with that lineup." -- David Cone after giving up homers to the Rangers' Juan Gonzalez, Will Clark and Ivan Rodriguez in the Yankees' 8-6 win.

It's a fact: Detroit's first 40 games this season are against teams from the AL East and West. The Tigers' first divisional game is against the Minnesota Twins next Tuesday.

DTC Who's hot: The White Sox's Albert Belle is 26-for-86, with nine doubles, seven homers and 22 RBIs in his past 23 games.

Who's not: Tampa Bay's Fred McGriff is 1-for-25 on the Devil Rays' homestand and has just one RBI in his previous 12 games.

On deck: Hideki Irabu, who is 2-0 with a 1.42 ERA in his past two starts, gets the start for the Yankees tonight against the Rangers.
