Hot corner

April 30, 1999

Quote: "I thought we were playing at the old Alameda Coliseum. I've never seen the wind blow in here. I hit two good ones today but came up short."

-- Mark McGwire, who hasn't homered in 28 at-bats, one short of his longest dry spell last year.

It's a fact: The Atlanta Braves are the only team in the NL that has not lost consecutive games.

Who's hot: Houston's Mike Lansing singled in five at-bats yesterday and was 7-for-14 for the series.

Who's not: Expos' Carl Pavano is 0-4 has an 7.83 ERA and has thrown just 23 innings in five starts.

On deck: Marlins closer Matt Mantei still awaits his first save opportunity.
