Hot corner

August 22, 1998

Quote: "I'm not throwing strikes. It's that simple. I wasn't doing much of anything out there. It's pitiful." -- Reds starter Brett Tomko, who gave up six runs in 2 1/3 innings.

It's a fact: The Marlins' starting lineup from last night trails Mark McGwire in home runs by five.

Who's hot: Jose Hernandez is 10-for-15 with three doubles and a homer in the first four games of the Cubs' homestand.

Who's not: The Mets' Todd Hundley has struck out 45 times in 102 at-bats since returning from reconstructive elbow surgery.

On deck: Newly acquired Gary Gaetti is expected to start at first today. He made his first start for the Cubs yesterday at third
