Hot corner

May 24, 1999

Quote: "We are not playing major-league baseball. This was pathetic. It was embarrassing." -- Manager Bruce Bochy, whose Padres were limited to two hits one day after losing a three-hit shutout.

It's a fact: Five of the Dodgers' seven sellout crowds this season have been with Mark McGwire in town, including all three games of this series.

Who's hot: The Brewers' Dave Nilsson is hitting .444 with five home runs and 11 RBIs in his past 11 games.

Who's not: Expos closer Ugueth Urbina has blown four of 11 save chances. He has allowed 13 earned runs this season after giving up 10 in 1998.

On deck: Jason Isringhausen, recalled from Triple-A Norfolk yesterday, will start for the Mets tonight against the Pirates.
