Hot corner


Quote: "I was running pretty good because I know better than to think that the ball's going out when I hit all of it. I figured I'd be shut down at third and Gardy [third base coach Ron Gardenhire] waved me on. I thought I was going to get thrown out by 30 feet."

-- Todd Walker, who hit the 45th inside-the-park home run in Twins history

It's a fact: Yesterday's game was the first time in 30 games at Safeco Field that the two teams have combined for six or more home runs.

Who's hot: The Devil Rays' Randy Winn is 5-for-7 since his recall from Triple-A Durham on Saturday.

Who's not: The Athletics' Jimmy Haynes has a 13.15 ERA during his five-game losing streak.

On deck: Jeff Fassero makes his first start for the Rangers today, in the second game of the doubleheader.
