Hot corner

August 20, 1999

Quote: "That team over there drives us nuts."

-- Braves manager Bobby Cox, whose team won the season series, 5-4, over the Rockies with a 14-inning victory yesterday.

It's a fact: The Braves have at least one double in 45 consecutive games, the longest streak in the majors since the Indians went 75 straight in 1996.

Who's hot: The Reds' Pete Harnisch has won eight consecutive decisions, dating back to June 12.

Who's not: Braves' John Smoltz hasn't won in nine starts since June 18, the longest winless streak of his career.

On deck: The Dodgers' Kevin Brown, 3-0 with a 0.39 ERA over his past three starts, faces the Phillies at the Vet.
