May 17, 1998

Quote: "We didn't know it was going to be this drastic. But obviously, I'm looking forward to making out that lineup." -- Dodgers manager Bill Russell on Friday night's trade.

It's a fact: For the fourth straight game, the Rockies faced at least a six-run deficit.

Who's hot: Mets starters have allowed two runs or fewer in each of the past 12 games.

Who's not: During the Rockies' six-game losing streak, every starter has allowed at least five runs.

On deck: Cubs rookie Kerry Wood goes for the three-game strikeout record today, needing 14 to match Nolan Ryan's major-league mark and 10 to tie Dwight Gooden's NL standard.
