Hot corner

May 28, 2000

Quote: "The bat felt like it was 300 pounds in my hands and I thought I was getting way weak and I was getting worried." - Rockies' Todd Helton, who ended an 0-for-13 slump Friday, then went 4-for-4 to raise his average to .406

It's a fact: Former Oriole Garrett Stephenson is 13-3 since joining the Cardinals, 7-0 this year.

Who's hot: Steve Finley tied his Diamondbacks record for homers in a month with nine; he also had nine last September and in April.

Who's not: The Pirates' Todd Ritchie has given up 19 earned runs in his past four outings - seven more than in his first six starts.

On deck: The Pirates don't face an NL Central team again until they play the Cubs on June 27.
