Hot corner


Quote: "We know we're going to go through probably 15 to 18 pitchers. It never fails. I don't like to think about it, but that's the reality of the situation." - pitching coach Joe Kerrigan of the Red Sox, who used 25 last year

It's a fact: A woman dressed as Queen Victoria threw the ceremonial first pitch in Toronto on Victoria Day, a national holiday in Canada.

Who's hot: The Mariners' John Olerud has reached base in eight consecutive at-bats.

Who's not: Since opening the season 4-0, the Yankees' Orlando Hernandez is winless since April 23 and has four losses and a no-decision in his past five starts.

On deck: The Red Sox's Pedro Martinez goes for his eighth victory tonight.
