Hot corner


Quote: "I can't say that I've had a lot of success against Griffey because I simply haven't."

Royals pitcher Jay Witasick on the Mariners' Ken Griffey, who has gone 5-for-11 with four homers against the Marylander.

It's a fact: Indians' Harold Baines is only the second player who turned 40 before Opening Day to drive in 100 or more runs.

Who's hot: The Twins' Mike Trombley has converted his past 13th save opportunities.

Who's not: The Indians' Jim Thome struck out his first three at-bats last night, tying Cory Snyder's Cleveland record of 166 in 1987.

On deck: The Tigers attempt to stay out of the AL Central cellar as the last-place Royals visit Detroit.
