Hot corner

August 02, 1999

Quote: "We have a lot of guys hurt, but all we can do is put our best foot forward and try not to sprain it."

-- First baseman Kevin Young of the Pirates, who have had 17 players on the DL, including 12 now

It's a fact: The Mets have not thrown a complete game since September, a span of 127 games -- 13 short of the Angels' major-league record.

Who's hot: Pirates starters have a 2.60 ERA the past two times around the rotation.

Who's not: The Reds' Sean Casey is in a 4-for-30 slump that has dropped his average from .374 to .354.

On deck: Todd Stottlemyre, recovering from a partial tear in his right rotator cuff, is scheduled to pitch for the Diamondbacks' Rookie-level team in Tucson on Wednesday.
