Hot corner


Quote: "We're in a pennant race. If they want me to be out there, I'll be out there." -- Red Sox pitcher Ramon Martinez, off the 60-day DL

It's a fact: The Rangers have 46 HRs in their past 21 games.

Who's hot: The Athletics' Ben Grieve was 8-for-12 in the series against the Yankees.

Who's not: The Red Sox had two errors yesterday after committing three on Wednesday.

On deck: The Red Sox's Pat Rapp, 2-0 with a 2.60 ERA over his past three starts, faces even a hotter foe in the Mariners' Jamie Moyer, with a 1.71 ERA over the same period.
