June 01, 1999

Quote: "I didn't feel real good at the plate. But this is my first time seeing most of these pitchers. I'm playing against guys I've seen only on video games." -- Pirates rookie Warren Morris, who's hitting .275

It's a fact: The game in Miami drew a holiday crowd of 21,943, well below the Cardinals' road average of 33,634.

Who's hot: Reds relievers are holding opponents to a .203 average and have an 0.82 ERA in their past eight games, a span of 33 innings.

Who's not: The Mets' Al Leiter has given up 10 home runs, one more than all last year.

On deck: Indianapolis 500 winner Kenny Brack is scheduled to throw out the first pitch tonight at Shea Stadium.
