Hot corner

September 18, 1998

Quote: "Everyone in this clubhouse feels like we have our road uniforms on. Heck, let's play all of our playoff games on the road." -- Padres' Greg Vaughn about the San Diego fans' reaction to Sammy Sosa's grand slam Wednesday night. It's a fact: The Padres have lost three straight and four out of five since clinching the NL West title Saturday night.

Who's hot: The Cubs' Mark Grace, hitting .317, hit RBI singles in consecutive at-bats yesterday.

Who's not: Dodgers outfielder Raul Mondesi is 1-for-18.

On deck: The Cubs' Kerry Wood, who's missed three starts, threw in the bullpen for about eight minutes and felt no pain, manager Jim Riggleman said. "If he couldn't have done this today without feeling pain, we would have shut him down" for the season, Riggleman said. Wood will throw again on the side Sunday.
