AL hot corner


Quote: "I didn't say anything about the call. It was too close for me to even think about arguing. I didn't even look at [umpire Bill Welke]." - Seattle's Rickey Henderson, of Tuesday's ejection for lingering more than five seconds after a called third strike. Replays confirmed he said nothing.

It's a fact: Ben Grieve's 16th homer for Oakland tied him with his father, Texas TV analyst Tom Grieve, for career homers, 65.

Who's hot: Chicago, by many measures, including having batted around in an inning 17 times this season.

Who's not: Tampa Bay's Jose Guillen is 9-for-58 in 16 games since June 17.

On deck: AL East-leading Toronto and Cleveland in the last of a three-game series, 7:05 p.m. EDT.
