Hot corner

June 26, 1999

Quote: "If the wind was blowing out, I would have broken their lawn mower so the grass would've grown real high." -- Manager Terry Francona, whose Phillies got the only homer at Wrigley Field yesterday

It's a fact: The Phillies have the top day-game record in the NL at 15-7.

Who's hot: The Reds' Michael Tucker is 7-for-14 in his past five games, all on the road, with six RBIs and five runs.

Who's not: Last night's attendance of 6,630 dropped Montreal's major-league-low average to 8,938 in 38 games at Olympic Stadium.

On deck: Mets pitching prospect Octavio Dotel makes his major-league debut today against the Braves and two-time Cy Young winner Tom Glavine.
