Hot corner

July 02, 1999

Quote: "There are 40 different reasons why I'm struggling from 80 different people. I'm just going to go back and start from scratch." -- Steve Trachsel of the Cubs, who lost his seventh straight decision to fall to 2-11.

It's a fact: The Cubs have not had a starting pitcher on the mound in the eighth inning since May 28.

Who's hot: The Braves' Tom Glavine won his fourth consecutive decision and his ERA, which had been 5.54 on May 24, dropped to 4.25.

Who's not: The Rockies' Darryl Kile is 0-3 with three no-decisions in his past six starts.

On deck: The Padres try to extend their 13-game winning streak tonight against the Rockies, who hope to end their eight-game losing streak.
