Hot corner

August 01, 1998

Quote: "Right in the middle of the ball game, we get a phone call and we have to remove Ellis [Burks] from the game. We were trying to conquer Kerry Wood at the time. It was a little bit of a distraction." -- Rockies manager Don Baylor, on the mid-game trade of Burks to the Giants.

It's a fact: The Expos' F. P. Santangelo was hit by pitches in his first two at-bats.

Who's hot: The Astros' 65-44 record is the best in franchise history through 109 games.

Who's not: The Rockies have lost 10 of their past 11 road games.

On deck: Tom Glavine (14-4) bids to become the NL's first 15-game winner today.
