Hot corner


Quote: "A lot of people came today to see a game. I was shocked. They wanted us to play." -- Yankees GM Brian Cashman, on seeing 30,000 in the stands at Yankee Stadium in the rain before the game with the Indians was postponed.

It's a fact: The Athletics' Mike Blowers is 6-for-12 lifetime against Randy Johnson.

Who's hot: The Red Sox's Troy O'Leary has five straight games of two hits each.

Who's not: The Devil Rays have lost eight of their past 10 and 16 of their past 23.

On deck: Two of the AL's top pitchers square off today, when the Angels' Chuck Finley (7-2) faces Rick Helling (8-3), who tries to keep the Rangers ahead of the second-place Angels in the West.
