Notable NATIONAL LEAGUE

July 15, 1998

Braves: Walt Weiss led off the game with a bloop single. He began the game in an 0-for-14 slump and with only four hits in his last 40 at-bats. Chipper Jones has four lifetime homers in 28 at-bats against Bobby Jones.

Brewers: The official scorer in Monday night's game, who had charged a two-base error to center fielder Marquis Grissom, changed his mind and charged it to right fielder Jeromy Burnitz. Gregg Jefferies' fly ball fell between them in the eighth inning.

Cardinals: Ray Lankford struck out twice and passed Mark McGwire for the team lead in that category with 83. The paid attendance of 31,183 was the smallest crowd at Busch Stadium since May 12.

Cubs: Chicago is 4-1 against the Pirates this season, but 82-150 at Three Rivers Stadium overall.

Mets: Bernard Gilkey made his first career start in center field. He had no tough plays.

Phillies: Philadelphia's last victory at County Stadium came on Sept. 20, 1965, when it beat the Braves, 4-1.
