Hot corner


Quote: "He was leaning out over the plate. If I throw a fastball down the middle, it would hit him."- Blue Jays reliever Pedro Borbon, accusing Red Sox's Carl Everett of crowding the plate

It's a fact: The Indians, because of injuries, have used 17pitchers this season. Cleveland's record for pitchers used is 26 in 1993.

Who's hot: The Athletics' Gil Heredia entered last night's game with the second-best road ERA in the American League (1.03).

Who's not: The Twins have lost nine of 12 and several players are in hitting slumps: Cristian Guzman is 6-for-52; Marcus Jensen is 3-for-34; Matthew LeCroy is 8-for-54; and Butch Huskey is 8-for-39.

On deck: The Yankees have a chance to pull ahead of the AL East-leading Red Sox as they begin a weekend series in New York.
