Hot corner

September 08, 1999

Quote: "It's not something I'm thinking about. Sixteen is a number." -- Cubs' Steve Trachsel (6-16), who has won two straight decisions

It's a fact: The Rockies, in Montreal, are playing their last series of the season on artificial turf.

Who's hot: Since joining the Reds, former Oriole Juan Guzman has five wins in six starts.

Who's not: The Phillies have lost 11 of their past 12.

On deck: Two of baseball's best pitchers face each other when Houston's Mike Hampton (18-3) opposes strikeout artist Curt Schilling (15-5) and the Phillies.
