Hot corner

August 08, 1998

Quote: "I get staked to a three-run lead and I immediately walk the leadoff guy. I'm my own worst enemy. I just pitched pretty poorly." -- Cubs starter Steve Trachsel, who got one out, allowing nine runs in the Cardinals' 11-run first.

It's a fact: The Reds are hitting .349 with the bases loaded this season.

Who's hot: The Mets' John Olerud has hit in 21 straight games.

Who's not: The Diamondbacks' Brian Anderson has allowed an NL-high 28 homers.

On deck: Astros closer Billy Wagner returned to the roster last night for the first time since he was struck in the head by a liner by Arizona's Kelly Stinnett on July 15.
