Hot corner

May 11, 1999

Quote: "I'm not a fast starter. Somebody pulled my numbers the other day from April of last year and told me I was only one home run and one RBI off my pace from last year." -- Greg Vaughn of the Reds, who had five homers last April and finished with 50. He had four last month and has seven now.

It's a fact: The Phillies' Rico Brogna and the Cardinals' Mark McGwire are the only two first basemen in the National League without an error.

Who's hot: The Phillies have scored 60 runs in eight games in May, an average of 7.5.

Who's not: The Reds' Mike Cameron is in a 4-for-25 slump.

On deck: Tonight, for the first time in major-league history, two starting pitchers with the same first and last names -- the Mets' Bobby J. Jones and the Rockies' Bobby M. Jones -- face each other.
