Hot corner

August 03, 1998

Quote: "It's my favorite number. I used it in the minors and in the Dominican [Republic]." -- Newly acquired Wilton Guerrero, who is wearing No. 4 with the Expos. The Dodgers had retired it in honor of Hall of Famer Duke Snider.

It's a fact: The Pirates started nine right-handed hitters against Randy Johnson, benching even NL stolen base leader Tony Womack.

Who's hot: Gary Sheffield has reached base safely in 43 of his past 44 games and in 64 of his 68 games with the Dodgers.

Who's not: The Marlins haven't hit two or more home runs in a game since June 24 against the Devil Rays.

On deck: With Mark McGwire and the Cardinals arriving in Milwaukee today, the Brewers have made the outfield bleachers into reserved seats for the three-game series.
