Hot corner

September 26, 1998

Quote: "We're fortunate where we're staying [Fort Lauderdale]. It's rainy and windy, but further south is where the hurricane is hitting." -- Gene Dias of the Phillies, who were rained out again by Hurricane Georges.

It's a fact: The Cardinals lead the NL with 218 homers, six more than the Braves. St. Louis last won the home run title in 1944 with 100.

Who's hot: The Reds' Bret Boone has four homers in his past five games.

Who's not: The Pirates' Francisco Cordova has given up 32 homers.

On deck: Two of the league's winningest pitchers, the Braves' Tom Glavine (20-6) and the Mets' Al Leiter (17-5), square off today.
