Hot Corner

July 26, 1999

Quote: "My slider wasn't really working all that great for me, my fastball was a little wild at times, but it seemed like every time I had to throw a strike, I was able to." -- Jason Schmidt, Pirates starter, who faced three batters over the minimum in a complete-game victory.

It's a fact: Houston is 11-4 in games in which Richard Hidalgo has homered.

Who's hot: The Cardinals are 4-0 under acting manager Rene Lachemann, running the team while Tony La Russa recovers from a stomach ailment.

Who's not: The Expos made two errors in the game to raise their total to a major-league-high 97.

On deck: Mets manager Bobby Valentine said he planned to give Kenny Rogers his first start Wednesday.
