Hot corner

May 05, 2000

Quote: "I don't know if they'll keep this up all year, but they're tough to pitch to. If they kept up this pace, [Jim] Edmonds would have 60 and [Mark] McGwire would have 60." -- Pirates manager Gene Lamont on the Cardinals pair, each of whom homered against Pittsburgh yesterday.

It's a fact: Philadelphia's 21 hits against Cincinnati were its most since getting 22 against San Diego in a game last August.

Who's hot: The Giants have a four-game winning streak at home after starting 1-7 at their new Pacific Bell Park.

Who's not: The Expos gave up 43 runs in the Rockies' three-game sweep.

On deck: The Diamondbacks' Randy Johnson goes for his seventh straight win to open the season tonight, looking to continue his dominance over the struggling Padres.
