Hot corner

August 23, 1998

Quote: "Doesn't anybody want to talk about what we did?" -- Manager Gene Lamont, after getting so many questions about Mark McGwire's home run but none about his Pirates, who won their sixth straight, scoring 14 runs.

It's a fact: Houston, which leads the NL in scoring, is the only team in the majors without a grand slam.

Who's hot: The Pirates have at least 10 hits in eight of their past nine games.

Who's not: The Dodgers' Darren Dreifort has lost four straight decisions and six of his past seven.

On deck: The Astros have 136 homers, two short of the club record set in 1993.
