Hot corner

July 26, 1998

Quote: "He said, 'Root for the Cubs' -- he's got to root for the Mets." -- Todd Hundley of the Mets, whose father, former Cubs catcher Randy Hundley, led the seventh-inning stretch singing at Wrigley Field.

It's a fact: The Cardinals' Mark McGwire did not get to put on his usual batting practice display because it was Rockies Family Day.

Who's hot: The Padres' Greg Vaughn has seven homers in his past nine games.

Who's not: The Cubs' Lance Johnson was 0-for-4, dropping his average to .175.

On deck: The Padres have seven sellouts this season, two shy of the club mark set in 1996.
