Hot corner

August 16, 1999

Quote: "I remember Steve Carlton struck out 19 and lost. Obviously it's not easy to take. Shane was outstanding, he deserved a better fate."

-- Astros manager Larry Dierker after Shane Reynolds struck out 14 Pirates and lost

It's a fact: The Reds failed to draw 30,000 fans for any of the three weekend games, even though first place was at stake.

Who's hot: The Mets' Mike Piazza is 12-for-18 (.667) in his past four starts with three home runs and nine RBIs.

Who's not: The Giants lost for the 21st time in 30 games.

On deck: The Astros' Jose Lima attempts to become the NL's third 16-game winner tonight.
