Hot corner

August 05, 1998

Quote: "That's just the way I like to work -- throw it over the plate, get it back and throw it again and see who's better." -- The Cubs' Kevin Tapani, who shut out the Diamondbacks for eight innings of a 2-hour, 5-minute game.

It's a fact: Mark Grudzielanek, who had fallen into disfavor with Expos fans before being traded to the Dodgers, was booed each time his name was announced.

Who's hot: The Mets' John Olerud has an 18-game hitting streak.

Who's not: The Rockies' Darryl Kile has given up 16 earned runs in his past 5 2/3 innings.

On deck: In a pitching match-up today featuring two All-Stars, the Phillies start Curt Schilling (10-10) against the Padres' Kevin Brown (13-3), who is seeking his 11th straight win.
