Hot corner

August 09, 1998

Quote: "If you don't have your stuff against that lineup, you're going to get hit hard. I was up and over the middle of the plate all day. It was just one of those days when I didn't have anything." -- Giants starter Danny Darwin, who gave up seven runs in 3 1/3 innings to the Braves.

It's a fact: The Cardinals' three homers gave them 145, breaking last year's team record for homers in a season.

Who's hot: The Mets' Armando Reynoso is 3-0 with an 0.82 ERA in three starts since coming off the disabled list.

Who's not: For the second consecutive night, the top two rows of lights in left-center field went out during the game at Cincinnati's Cinergy Field, named for a power company.

On deck: The Braves' John Smoltz (10-2) goes for his sixth straight victory today.
