Hot corner

May 06, 1999

Quote: "I just don't want to get carried away with what's happening. Right now, I feel like I'm in a pretty good groove and can't wait for my next start." -- Braves' John Smoltz, whose record after yesterday's win is 5-0 and who leads the NL with a 1.69 ERA.

It's a fact: The Braves' Otis Nixon, 40, has 603 steals, 19th on the career list, with 498 after the age of 30.

Who's hot: The Rockies' Larry Walker went 3-for-5 yesterday, raising his average to .386 and extending his hitting streak to 10 games.

Who's not: The Padres have lost seven of their last eight games.

On deck: The three pitchers for the Marlins' upcoming series in Los Angeles -- right-handers Dennis Springer and Livan Hernandez and left-hander Jesus Sanchez -- are a combined 1-10.
