Hot corner

June 02, 2000

Quote: "If he had a broken leg, he'd want to play."- Braves manager Bobby Cox on the Cubs' Mark Grace, who was activated off the disabled list after suffering strained left hamstrings.

It's a fact: The Astros have lost nine consecutive road games.

Who's hot: The Cardinals' Rick Ankiel, the youngest pitcher in the majors, has not allowed a home run by a left-handed hitter in 91 1/3 career innings.

Who's not: The Reds' Ken Griffey, hitless in his past 14 at-bats, is in a 4-for-40 skid.

On deck: Philly's right-hander Robert Person, who has 46 strikeouts in his past 39 1/3 innings, will start tonight against Boston as interleague play begins.
