September 10, 1998

Quote: "This is like Christmas. We knew Mark McGwire was going to be generous, but we didn't know it would be so spontaneous, in the heat of the celebration." -- Hall of Fame president Don Marr after receiving the 62nd home run ball, the bat that hit it, McGwire's uniform, cleats, etc.

It's a fact: At 23, third baseman Scott Rolen has become the youngest Phillie this century to reach 100 RBIs.

Who's hot: Mets third baseman Edgardo Alfonzo has hit 11 of his 17 homers this season in his last 35 games, including four in his last seven.

Who's not: Over his last six games, Braves star Greg Maddux has gone 2-3 with a 5.53 ERA.

On deck: The Pirates' Jose Silva (6-3) tries to contain Sammy Sosa and the Cubs tonight. Kevin Tapani (17-7) faces the Pirates.
