Hot corner

Quote: "I guess it wasn't enough, was it?" - Terrell Lowery, caught in a roster crunch and designated for assignment by the Giants despite hitting .556

It's a fact: The Yankees passed 1 million in home attendance for the 54th time in 55 seasons (all but 1972).

Who's hot: The Angels' Darin Erstad has a major-league-leading 100 hits in 61 games, the fastest to that level since Heinie Manush did it in 60 games for the 1934 Senators.

Who's not: The Cubs' Sammy Sosa has struck out eight times in two games against the White Sox.

On deck: The Yankees' David Cone, who faces the Mets today on five days' rest, is 1-0 with a 3.00 ERA in three starts on five days' rest. He is 0-6 with an 8.04 ERA in nine starts on four days' rest.
