Hot corner

September 06, 1998

Quote: "I got the ball. I'll add it to my collection, and maybe some day my son will cherish it." -- John Franco of the Mets, who moved into second place all-time in saves.

It's a fact: The last time the Dodgers failed to have a winning streak of four or more games was in 1936.

Who's hot: The Padres' Chris Gomez is batting .411 (21-for-51) during a 14-game hitting streak and .390 (30-for-77) over his past 24 games.

Who's not: Pirates shortstop Abraham Nunez committed three errors, two on the same play and another that scored two runs.

On deck: Dodgers Spanish-language broadcaster Jaime Jarrin, inducted into the broadcast wing of the Hall of Fame last month, will be getting his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Sept. 14.
