Hot corner

August 25, 1998

Quote: "It's like buying a ticket to see Elvis and you get a garage band instead. The band might be as good, but it's not Elvis." -- John Mabry, booed in Pittsburgh for playing first base instead of Mark McGwire, who got the day off.

It's a fact: The Mets have used 113 different batting orders this season.

Who's hot: The Rockies' Todd Helton has hit safely in 36 of his past 44 games (57-for-162, .351) with nine homers and 32 RBIs.

Who's not: The Expos drew 7,537. Montreal has had 35 crowds under 10,000 this season.

On deck: The Marlins' Kirt Ojala, who gave up three homers to the Giants on Sunday, will pitch at St. Louis against Mark McGwire tomorrow.
