Hot corner


Quote: "I felt comfortable, but it was a little weird. It's a long run from right field to the dugout. I was just lucky I didn't get any balls hit to me." - White Sox shortstop Jose Valentin, who played the outfield for the first time in his major-league career

It's a fact: Cristian Guzman leads the majors with 12 triples, four off the Twins record by Hall of Famer Rod Carew in 1977.

Who's hot: Bernie Williams has hit safely in the first 12 games of the Yankees' 13-game road trip and is 23-for-51 (.451) with five homers and 15 RBIs.

Who's not: After having an 0.49 ERA in May, White Sox reliever Keith Foulke's ERA in June was 9.26.

On deck: The Indians have used 26 pitchers and seem to be a cinch to break the major-league record, 29 by the 1996 Angels.
