Hot corner

September 14, 1998

Quote: "He's going to have to break my leg to get there." -- Todd Hundley, who blocked the plate and tagged Shane Andrews to end the game in his first start at catcher for the Mets in nearly a year.

It's a fact: Country singer Garth Brooks worked out before the game with the Pirates. Brooks, a switch-hitter, hit two pitches over the fence, one from each side of the plate.

Who's hot: Since returning to the Expos' rotation at the beginning of the month, Miguel Batista is 1-0 with a 1.50 ERA.

Who's not: The Rockies' Brian Johnson is hitless in his past 14 at-bats.

On deck: Doug Glanville has 180 hits and, with 13 games remaining, has a chance to become the first Phillie to reach 200 hits in a season since Pete Rose in 1979.
