Hot corner

September 03, 1998

Quote: "It's incredible to be able to do what Sammy [Sosa] and Mark are doing. They're kind of feeding off each other. I'm in a unique situation to see both sides." -- The Cubs' Gary Gaetti, who was with Mark McGwire and the Cardinals earlier in the season.

It's a fact: The Diamondbacks lead the majors in triples with 36.

Who's hot: The Braves' Denny Neagle (Arundel High) is 18-4 in 34 starts at home since the beginning of the 1997 season, and 33-6 in his past 60 home starts.

Who's not: The Expos' Javier Vazquez has not made it past the fourth inning in any of his past three starts, going 0-2 with a 19.44 ERA (18 earned runs in 8 1/3 innings).

On deck: The Giants' Barry Bonds needs one more homer to tie Duke Snider (407) for 26th place on the career home run list.
