The hot corner


Quote: "Beating a top team always feels good because their payroll is like $60 million and ours is like $16 [million]." - reliever Eddie Guardado after the Twins beat the Cardinals

It's a fact: The Braves have played five games at Tropicana Field and have had a player homer twice in each of them.

Who's hot: The Astros' Scott Elarton has allowed six earned runs in his past 37 1/3 innings (a 1.45 ERA).

Who's not: The Indians' Richie Sexson has hit .190 (11-for-58) with 20 strikeouts in his past 20 games.

On deck: Devil Rays DH Jose Canseco, out since May 25 with a strained left heel, remains on schedule to return Wednesday.
