Hot corner

September 17, 1998

Quote: "If they gave a Cy Young for the second half, I would probably win. I'm proud of the way I'm finishing, and I want to keep that feeling." -- Braves pitcher John Smoltz, who has won 11 of his past 12 decisions. It's a fact: The Brewers have turned a major-league-leading 185 double plays, including two yesterday.

Who's hot: The Dodgers are 10-5 in September.

Who's not: Brewers pitcher Scott Karl hasn't won in seven starts since winning in Cincinnati on Aug. 9.

On deck: Braves starters Denny Neagle and Greg Maddux, both bothered by nagging injuries, expect to start the next two games for Atlanta at Arizona.
