Quote: "I missed it. Win, lose or draw I missed it, and it was nice to get back out there and be with the boys." -- Kansas City manager Tony Muser, who was back in the dugout yesterday after serving an eight-game suspension for his part in the Royals' June 2 brawl with Anaheim.
It's a fact: The Yankees' 49-16 start ties the 1928 team for second best in team history. The 1939 Yanks began 50-15.
Who's not: Athletics starter Tom Candiotti (4-9) allowed three runs and four hits in five innings in losing his fifth straight. He also walked six, had two wild pitches and an error.
On deck: New York at Cleveland: The Yankees are 16-5 at Jacobs Field, the best record of any Indians opponent.
