NL hot corner

September 22, 2000

Quote: "He's something. He's a superstar, no question about it. This is what Babe Ruth must have looked like."

- Florida manager John Boles on Montreal slugger Vladimir Guerrero, who hit his team-record 43rd homer of the season.

It's a fact: Colorado's Jeff Cirillo and Todd Helton are the sixth pair of teammates to both reach 50 doubles in the same season.

Who's hot: Houston's Richard Hidalgo homered off St. Louis' Gene Stechschulte for his 42nd of the year and ninth against St. Louis, the most vs. any team.

Who's not: St. Louis' Andy Benes is 0-5 in his last seven starts.

On deck: Darryl Kile will be going for his 20th win tonight as St. Louis faces Kerry Wood and the Cubs.
