Hot corner


Quote: "Only in Boston do they cheer the scoreboard." -- Red Sox reliever Rheal Cormier, who realized fans were cheering the Indians leading the Yankees rather than Trot Nixon's home run on Sunday when he saw the scoreboard.

It's a fact: Groundskeepers at Tiger Stadium have cut a dirt path from the mound to home plate, recreating the look of the original diamond.

Who's hot: The White Sox's bullpen has allowed one run in its past 23 1/3 innings.

Who's not: The Blue Jays are 5-15 at home in August and September.

On deck: The Tigers are playing their final homestand at Tiger Stadium. Barring rainouts, there will have been 6,873 regular-season games, 35 postseason games and three All-Star Games since the park opened April 20, 1912.
