Hot corner

September 11, 1998

Quote: "If I would have gone out, who knows? He probably would have continued mastering us, and it could have been a no-hitter and everything." -- The Dodgers' Eric Young who dashed Kevin Brown's perfect game bid by reaching on a throwing error to lead off the seventh inning. The Dodgers went on to win, 4-3.

It's a fact: With rookie Brian Daubach's first major-league start, the Florida Marlins have used 27 rookies this season. It is the most rookies used by a team since the expansion 1969 San Diego Padres used 25 in a season.

Who's hot: The Mets' Armando Reynoso has won seven of eight starts since coming off the disabled list. Six of those times he has allowed two runs or fewer.

Who's not: The Giants' Shawn Estes hasn't won on the road since May 4 and is 1-8 in 12 starts away from San Francisco.

On deck: The Cubs and Sammy Sosa open a home series against renewed rival Milwaukee this afternoon.
