NL notable

June 05, 1998

Astros: Sean Bergman pitched a complete game and hit a two-run single Wednesday.

Braves: Tom Glavine won his fourth straight game Wednesday and became the NL's third eight-game winner.

Cubs: Kerry Wood struck out nine in eight innings Wednesday to win his fifth straight decision.

Diamondbacks: Hitting coach Jim Presley was ejected by plate umpire Jim Quick in the seventh inning, apparently for arguing balls and strikes.

Dodgers: Eric Karros, who was without an RBI in 45 at-bats, drove in five runs Wednesday. Ramon Martinez has won five straight decisions.

Expos: Carlos Perez won his sixth straight Wednesday.

Padres: The last San Diego pitcher to throw three straight complete games was Dennis Rasmussen in 1988. With Wally Joyner sitting against a left-hander, Andy Sheets started at first base for the first time in the majors.

Pirates: Jason Christiansen earned his first career save Wednesday in 159 career appearances. After going 0-for-24, rookie Aramis Ramirez got his first career hit Wednesday. Jermaine Allensworth broke a 1-for-21 slump with a triple in that game.

Rockies: Colorado beat Arizona, 3-2, in 2 hours, 11 minutes. It was the shortest nine-inning game in Coors Field history, surpassing by one minute the Rockies' 6-2 win over the Reds on Sept. 9, 1995.
