Hot corner

May 14, 2000

Quote: "It was foul when I hit it. It was foul unless one of those big planes came in with a big gust of wind at the right time." - Pitcher Mike Hampton, who missed a game-winning homer by 10 feet when used as a pinch hitter by the Mets, who had run out of batters on the bench

It's a fact: The Phillies reinstituted an old tradition of flying in a player's mother for a series during Mother's Day weekend, and pitcher Randy Wolf's mom, Judy, was the lucky parent.

Who's hot: The Rockies' Todd Helton, the majors' leading batter, is hitting .536 (30-for-53) at Coors Field.

Who's not: The Astros' Jeff Bagwell is hitting .059 (1-for-17) on the homestand.

On deck: The Astros' Shane Reynolds (5-0) had his next start pushed back one day because of slight stiffness in his shoulder and will pitch Tuesday.
