Hot corner

August 19, 1998

Quote: "Right now, I'll take ugly wins. Anything for a win, especially against the Dodgers. They're a team that I really struggled with." -- Pirates' Jason Schmidt, who won his second in a row after losing eight straight.

It's a fact: Philadelphia fans, who once booed Santa Claus at an Eagles game, loudly booed an Elvis impersonator who sang "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" during the seventh-inning stretch Monday.

Who's hot: The Padres are 69-0 when leading after eight innings and have won 158 in a row in that situation.

Who's not: The Giants have the second-worst record in the majors (14-22) since the All-Star break.

On deck: The Braves' Tom Glavine goes for his league-leading 17th victory tonight against the Giants.
