Hot corner

April 16, 1999

Quote: "They will take a piece of my heart with them when they tear down this place."

-- Hank Aaron on Milwaukee's County Stadium, which will be host to its final home opener today when the Brewers take on the Cubs in expected 30-degree temperatures.

It's a fact: The Cubs avoided a potential 900th all-time loss to Cincinnati when the game was postponed by rain. They are 926-899 in the series.

Who's hot: The Giants' Barry Bonds had two doubles, going 2-for-3 to raise his average to .412.

Who's not: Expos right fielder Vladimir Guerrero committed two errors against the Brewers. Guerrero and his older brother, Wilton, have combined for eight of Montreal's major league-leading 15 errors.

On deck: The Pirates send Jason Schmidt, who allowed seven hits and walked four with 10 strikeouts in winning his first two starts, against the Reds today.
