Hot corner


Quote: "Last year, for whatever reason, he wasn't as aggressive. Today, he threw strike one, strike two and got ahead in the count." -- Oakland's Jason Giambi on the Indians' Jaret Wright.

It's a fact: The Athletics' Ben Grieve is a .238 career hitter in April (48-for-202), .287 for the rest of the season.

Who's hot: The Red Sox' Carl Everett went 5-for-8 with two homers and five RBIs in the two games with Minnesota. He's hitting .464 and has hit in all eight games this season.

Who's not: The Twins committed an error for the seventh consecutive game.

On deck: Ivan Rodriguez and the Rangers face Orlando "El Duque" Hernandez and the Yankees in a playoff rematch in New York tonight.
