Hot corner National League

September 24, 1998

Quote: "If they had a four-letter word for baseball, we'd probably be using it." -- The Cubs' Rod Beck, who blew just his sixth save in 56 opportunities as the Brewers rallied for 8-7 win.

It's a fact: Scott Rolen has set a single-season Phillies record for doubles by a third baseman with his 44th. Pinky Whitney established the long-standing club mark with 43 in 1929.

Who's hot: The Giants have scored 44 runs in their past four games.

Who's not: The Pirates have lost seven of their past eight. They have managed more than two runs just twice in that span and have been outscored 26-4 in the first three games of their series in San Francisco.

On deck: A public memorial for Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Jim Murray, who died Aug. 16, will be held Saturday at Dodger Stadium.
