Hot corner

September 20, 1998

Quote: "That's the first time I have ever seen a pitcher throw that hard and yet be around the plate." -- Mike Barrett of the Expos, making his major-league debut: striking out twice, grounding out and walking against Curt Schilling.

It's a fact: Sammy Sosa has hit 50 home runs since the Blue Jays' Roger Clemens last lost a game.

Who's hot: The Giants have homered in 17 of their past 19 games.

Who's not: The Astros' Jose Lima has allowed 32 home runs.

On deck: Roger Maris' family will sing "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" during the seventh-inning stretch today as part of the Cubs' tribute day to Sosa.
