Hot corner

August 10, 1998

Quote: "When you have guys get on base as much as this team, you can put up numbers like that." -- Moises Alou of the Astros, who has 30 homers and 101 RBIs.

It's a fact: Since June 7, Mark McGwire has driven in just two runs with a hit other than a homer, a two-run RBI single Friday against the Cubs.

Who's hot: The Astros' Jeff Bagwell is batting .394(13-for-33) during a nine-game hitting streak.

Who's not: The Cubs' Jeff Blauser is in a 4-for-39 slump.

On deck: Kevin Brown looks to set the Padres record by winning his 12th straight tonight, going against his former team, the Marlins.
