Hot corner

April 14, 1999

Quote: "Everything I touched in spring training was golden. Now it's like mud. My mom could have been lobbing them to me [Monday], and I couldn't have hit one." -- Chipper Jones of the Braves, who went 0-for-5 Monday and is batting .206.

It's a fact: The Dodgers wore "Los Angeles" across the chest of their road uniforms Monday for the first time since 1970.

Who's hot: In their past five games, Reds starters have pitched 37 of a possible 45 innings and given up eight runs (1.95 ERA) and 24 hits.

Who's not: Diamondbacks closer Gregg Olson has blown his three save chances.

On deck: The Rockies' Jim Leyland, fourth among active managers in victories, goes for No. 1,000 tonight.
