Hot corner


Quote: "Fans tell me I'm the only Red Sox player they would ever cheer for. But they'll never be Red Sox fans." -- Ex-Yankee Jim Leyritz, on returning to New York.

It's a fact: The Angels' Cecil Fielder hit a prodigious drive in the seventh inning -- and first baseman Ron Coomer caught it in foul territory. Fielder hit the roof with a popup, a rarity at the Metrodome.

Who's hot: The Tigers' Damion Easley has hit in 18 straight games.

Who's not: The Red Sox's Mo Vaughn struck out twice and

grounded into a double play.

On deck: Twins starter Brad Radke (6-3), who beat the Angels last Sunday for his third straight win and is 5-1 in his career against Anaheim, faces Ken Hill (7-3) today.
