June 24, 1999

Quote: "It's 12: 30 [in the morning]. What are you waiting on? It was a slider on the outside. That's it. I'm tired, go home."

-- Mark McGwire of the Cardinals to the media early yesterday morning after delivering a game-winning single in the 14th inning. It's a fact: The Phillies' Marlon Anderson is hitting .232 for the season, but is batting .451 with runners in scoring position.

Who's hot: The Mets' Rey Ordonez is hitting .472 his last 15 games.

Who's not: The Dodgers' Raul Mondesi is in a 3-for-30 slump and hasn't hit a home run in 40 at-bats.

On deck: Giants outfielder Armando Rios will have arthroscopic surgery on his left shoulder today.
