May 18, 1999

Quote: "I've really come to hate those initials. It's safe to say none of my children will have the initials D.L." -- Braves pitcher John Smoltz, who went on the disabled list for the third time in two years.

It's a fact: The Padres' Wally Joyner went 100 at-bats without grounding into a double play before doing it in his first two appearances Saturday.

Who's hot: The Phillies have won 10 of 14.

Who's not: The Braves' Chipper Jones has nine hits in his past 50 at-bats.

On deck: The Astros' Jose Lima will try to win a career-best seventh straight start tonight in Los Angeles.
