Hot corner

July 03, 1999

Quote: "I watch the Weather Channel all the time. I like it because the lake in my backyard was dry and now the bass are biting."

-- Expos manager Felipe Alou, who lives in nearby West Palm Beach, Fla., after the team's game in Miami was rained out

It's a fact: The Astros are 15-18 against the NL Central, matching their loss total for last season, when they went 38-18 against division opponents.

Who's hot: The Brewers' Jeromy Burnitz has seven homers in his past 12 games.

Who's not: The Cubs, who have lost 16 of 21, have allowed double figures in runs in eight of their past 15 games.

On deck: The Brewers will activate Bill Pulsipher from the disabled list to start tonight's game.
