Hot corner

August 21, 1998

Quote: "I was in the right place at the right time. I'm a happy guy." -- Fan Mike Scelsi, who caught Mark McGwire's 50th homer and was offered $10,000 for the ball.

It's a fact: Braves 16-game winner Tom Glavine is 10-1 with a 1.66 ERA on the road, but just 6-4 with a 3.54 ERA at home.

Who's hot: Pittsburgh's Manny Martinez has knocked in 12 runs in nine games since being recalled from the minors.

Who's not: Last night's loss ensured that the defending World Series champion Marlins will finish below .500. They're 45-82.

On deck: After hitting his 24th homer of the year, the Giants' Barry Bonds needs one more to become the first player in major-league history to hit 400 home runs and steal 400 bases.
