Hot corner

July 05, 1999

Quote: "When I was growing up in Louisiana, we used to play tripleheaders in worse than this, then go home and play Wiffle ball. I actually enjoyed it."

-- Diamondbacks' David Dellucci, who had a career-high five RBIs in 95-degree mugginess in St. Louis

It's a fact: The Expos have fared a lot better on July 4 (21-10) than they have on July 1 (Canada Day: 12-14).

What's hot: A thermometer placed on the on-deck circle at Cinergy Field 15 minutes before the first pitch registered 150 degrees.

Who's not: The Expos are a combined 3-12 during Rondell White's two stints on the DL.

On deck: Randy Johnson and Cardinals rookie Jose Jimenez meet today, 10 days after Jimenez no-hit the Diamondbacks, ruining Johnson's 14-strikeout performance.
