Hot corner

August 30, 1998

Quote: "I never said I was going to retire because I couldn't do the job anymore. I've won two championships, and I want one more, but I want to go home and see my kids." -- Joe Carter of the Giants, who went 3-for-5, on retirement plans.

It's a fact: The Giants' 36-24 record in day games trails only the Braves' (28-9) and Padres' (30-14) in the NL.

Who's hot: The Braves' Javy Lopez has four homers and eight RBIs in the past six games.

Who's not: The Phillies lost for the sixth time in seven games and fell to 10-21 since going a season high five games over .500 on July 29.

On deck: The Marlins have lost 13 of 16 and, with 26 games left, are on pace to break the franchise record of 98 losses in the inaugural season of 1993.
