NL hot corner

September 14, 2000

Quote: "The great ones all turn it up in September. - Giants manager Dusty Baker on Barry Bonds after he won Tuesday's game. Last night, Bonds hit his 47th homer, a career high.

It's a fact: Los Angeles' Dave Hansen's seventh pinch-hit homer Tuesday broke a 68-year-old majors record for such hits in one season.

Who's hot: Eric Young's 52nd stolen base of the season last night for Cincinnati was his 26th in a row.

Who's not: Milwaukee right-hander John Snyder allowed seven runs and nine hits over 4 1/3 innings Tuesday night and was tagged with his seventh straight loss.

On deck: Can Chicago's Sammy Sosa, whose 49 homers lead the majors, join Babe Ruth and Mark McGwire as the only players with more than two 50-homer seasons? The Cubs play at St. Louis tonight.
