Hot corner

July 20, 1999

Quote: "For me, it sort of symbolizes I've come full circle. Going into every spring training, I'm wondering how much I have left; how many pitches do I have left? I think all the questions are valid."

-- David Cone of the Yankees, who pitched a perfect game Sunday after overcoming an aneurysm in his pitching arm and a bone spur in his shoulder in past years.

It's a fact: Scott Rolen has 10 homers in July, the most in a month by a Phillies hitter since Mike Schmidt had 12 in July 1982.

Who's hot: Since being snubbed for the All-Star Game, the Astros' Craig Biggio is batting .467.

Who's not: The Reds' Scott Williamson, who took the loss last night, has blown four saves in his past five chances after closing out 10 of his first 12 opportunities.

On deck: The Diamondbacks' Randy Johnson returns to Seattle tonight to face the Mariners, his former team, at their new ballpark.
