Hot corner

May 03, 1999

Quote: "It's been six years since we've played good baseball on a consistent basis here. It's up to the Phillies ownership to get the players and put a good team out there." -- Phillies pitcher Curt Schilling

It's a fact: Jim Leyland is 11-12 in games against the Pirates since he left Pittsburgh for the Marlins in 1997.

Who's hot: The Mets' John Olerud has reached safely in all 25 games this season.

Who's not: The Marlins' Derrek Lee is 3-for-23 with 11 strikeouts with runners in scoring position.

On deck: St. Louis and Atlanta begin a three-game series tonight at the Braves' Turner Field, where Mark McGwire has never hit a home run.
