AL hot corner


Quote: "Gosh, it was just a great outing for me. It will sink in later tonight. I will really relish this."- the Devil Rays' Travis Harper, who became the first American League player to collect a shutout for his first major-league win since California's Tim Fortugno blanked Detroit on July 25, 1992.

It's a fact: With his 44th home run, the Angels' Troy Glaus tied the AL record for home runs by a third baseman, set by Cleveland's Al Rosen in 1953.

Who's hot: The Royals' Blake Stein allowed four hits yesterday and has given up just two earned runs in his past 24 innings. The right-hander has won seven of his past eight decisions.

Who's not: Jeff Weaver (10-15) moved into a tie for the AL lead in losses, matching the Orioles' Mike Mussina, the Twins' Brad Radke and the Blue Jays' Kelvim Escobar.

On deck: The Indians head home to play a unique day-night doubleheader. Cleveland plays AL Central champion Chicago in an afternoon makeup game before playing Minnesota at night in a regularly scheduled game.
