Hot corner

June 03, 1999

Quote: "I don't know why we always wait so long but there's always a lot of dramatic excitement." -- Mark Grace of the Cubs, whose team won for the 10th time this season on its last at-bat.

It's a fact: Padres closer Trevor Hoffman, who last season was 53-for-54 in save chances, has already blown three this season.

Who's hot: The Diamondbacks' Steve Finley had four extra-base hits last night, finishing 9-for-15 in the three-game series at Montreal.

Who's not: The Giants have lost 13 of 18 road games and, with last night's loss to the Phillies, have dropped six of their last seven.

On deck: Phillies' Curt Schilling today tries to become the first pitcher in the '90s to throw six straight complete games.
