Hot corner

August 30, 1999

Quote: "Coors Field cranks my average up a considerable amount. There's no hiding that, and I don't try to hide from it." -- Rockies' Larry Walker, who is hitting .450 at home and .280 on the road.

It's a fact: The Pirates finished with an all-time record of 108-156 at Candlestick Park and are 7-5 in last visits to ballparks.

Who's hot: The Giants' J. T. Snow is on a 14-for-31 tear.

Who's not: The Marlins' 96 homers are the fewest in the league and second fewest in the majors behind the Twins' 86.

On deck: Because of Saturday's doubleheader, the Rockies plan to promote Luther Hackman from Triple-A Colorado Springs to start Wednesday's game.
