Quote: "We know they swing the bats. They put up Nintendo numbers."

Red Sox first baseman Mike Stanley, on the Indians. It's a fact: Dave Mlicki's eight-game winning streak is the Tigers' longest since Doyle Alexander won eight in a row in 1987.

Who's hot: The Indians' 363rd consecutive sellout brought the season total to 3,037,657 -- the fourth straight year the team has surpassed 3 million.

Who's not: The Devil Rays' Bobby Witt lost his fifth straight decision. He is 1-7 in nine starts since a four-hit shutout July 26.

On deck: Devil Rays officials are closely monitoring Hurricane Floyd, which is threatening Florida. The team opens a three-game series with the Mariners today.
