Hot corner

June 14, 1998

Quote: "I didn't know whether to go out there or not. So, you know, I asked some of the guys, 'Can I go out there?' and they said, 'Yeah, go ahead.' I kind of got goose bumps all over." -- Diamondbacks rookie Travis Lee, who drove in five runs and earned his first curtain call.

It's a fact: The Marlins are 9-29 in games in which they score first.

Who's hot: The Phillies' Doug Glanville is hitting .403 (25-for-62) with three home runs during a 13-game hitting streak.

Who's not: The Cubs' 5-9 hitters went a combined 1-for-22 with 11 strikeouts.

On deck: For the first time in club history, the Dodgers will wear their blue batting jerseys during games in their next homestand (June 24-28) in honor of their annual Think Blue Week.
