Hot corner

May 16, 1999

Quote: "I know it looks bad and I know it may sound stupid, but I like the way I threw the ball today." -- Greg Maddux of the Braves, who lost his third straight, allowing five runs and a career-high 14 hits.

It's a fact: The Cubs have two straight complete games after going 98 straight without one.

Who's hot: In his past four starts, the Astros' Mike Hampton is 4-0 with a 1.16 ERA with 24 strikeouts and four walks.

Who's not: The Braves are hitless in their past 24 at-bats with runners in scoring position.

On deck: Hideo Nomo, on the comeback trail, goes for his second win in as many starts with the Brewers today.
