Hot corner

May 31, 1998

Quote: "I don't ever remember stealing home before. Maybe in a previous life." -- Todd Helton of the Rockies, who scored on a double steal.

It's a fact: With a wink to the Diamondbacks' outfield swimming pool at Bank One Ballpark, the Giants set up a hot tub in the outfield bleachers for Arizona's visit to 3Com Park.

Who's hot: The Dodgers' Eric Young stole his major-league-leading 22nd base. Young has stolen 10 straight, 14 of 17 and 22 of 27.

Who's not: In the past nine games, the Cubs' bullpen has given up 28 runs on 45 hits and 15 walks over 26 innings. The team is 3-6 in that stretch.

On deck: The Braves' Denny Neagle (7-1), winner of six straight, faces Kevin Tapani (6-3), who has an 8-1 record at Wrigley Field since joining the Cubs.
