Hot corner

May 02, 1999

Quote: "I felt better, but still I made inexcusable mistakes and just real poor execution and I cost the team. I pitched like a loser." -- Jim Abbott of the Brewers, who allowed five runs in 5 2/3 innings.

It's a fact: Prime Minister of Japan Keizo Obuchi threw out the first pitch at Wrigley Field. He's headed to a summit with President Clinton tomorrow.

Who's hot: Braves starters have allowed one run in their past 31 innings.

Who's not: The Cubs' Sammy Sosa went 0-for-4 and is hitless in his past 13 at-bats. He has struck out 29 times in 21 games.

On deck: The Dodgers' Kevin Brown is expected to make his start against the Phillies' Curt Schilling today despite wrenching his back fielding a bunt on Tuesday.
