Hot corner

June 16, 1999

Quote: "I don't mind too much about the streak. I think it's secondary. I just go out there every day because I love to play. I love to help my team win. Right now I'm hurting the team instead of helping it." -- Vinny Castilla of the Rockies, whose reign as iron man ended at 307 games

It's a fact: Rich Aurilia is the first Giants shortstop with at least 12 homers since Chris Speier hit 15 in 1972.

Who's hot: The Mets' Mike Piazza is hitting .355 (27-for-76) during his 18-game hitting streak.

Who's not: Castilla is hitting .226 with runners in scoring position and has nine errors.

On deck: The Expos' Rondell White missed his second straight game with a strained right hamstring and may not play until Friday.
