Hot corner

August 29, 1998

Quote: "I can run, but I feel it in the first couple of steps. It's one of those things that you can play with, you just can't play the way you want to."-- Padres star Tony Gwynn, who was eligible to come off the DL yesterday but will remain inactive for the next few days.

It's a fact: The Marlins' Jesus Sanchez leads the major leagues with 12 pickoffs.

Who's hot: Reds closer Gabe White has allowed three earned runs in his past 14 appearances, spanning 18 2/3 innings, for a 1.45 ERA.

On deck: Mark McGwire gets an extra game to shoot for the home run record when the Cardinals play the Pirates in a doubleheader Sept. 15 in St. Louis. One of the games is a makeup for the one suspended by rain Monday.
