Hot corner

May 24, 1998

Quote: "I probably should be out shopping or doing work that needs to be done. But when I saw that we got [Mike Piazza], I wanted to come out and see his first game with the Mets." -- Mets fan Jack Sanchez.

It's a fact: The paid attendance of 15,663 was the largest at Olympic Stadium since April 12, when the Cubs' Kerry Wood made his major-league debut.

Who's hot: The Mets' Al Leiter lowered his ERA to a major-league-best 1.49 and has allowed just six runs and 24 hits in his past 35 1/3 innings.

Who's not: The Rockies have scored five runs in their past four games.

On deck: The Giants will skip over veteran Danny Darwin in the rotation later this month so he can see his daughter's high school graduation.
