Hot corner

June 28, 1999

Quote: "The way runs are being scored nowadays, a five-run lead isn't even safe." -- Pirates manager Gene Lamont, whose team almost didn't hold one

It's a fact: Yesterday's was the Braves' shortest game of the season at 2 hours, 6 minutes.

Who's hot: The Braves' Greg Maddux has given up two earned runs in his past 21 2/3 innings (0.83 ERA).

Who's not: Since June 15, the Astros' Derek Bell is hitting .163 (7-for-43).

On deck: It's looking like a done deal that the Dodgers will be the first opponent at the Giants' new Pac Bell Park next spring.
