NL hot corner

June 17, 2000

Quote: "I don't have an answer to this. What do you want me to do - start making up pitches out there? I am throwing pitches, and they aren't missing them." - Houston closer Billy Wagner, who blew his eighth save in 14 chances this year in a 5-4 loss to Colorado on Thursday.

It's a fact: Kevin Millwood became the first Atlanta pitcher since Phil Niekro in 1980 to start against the same team twice in a series Thursday. He lasted only one-third of an inning Monday.

Who's hot: The Dodgers' Kevin Brown won his third straight complete game, striking out 10, walking none in Thursday's 4-0 win over Arizona.

Who's not: Atlanta's 2-3-4-5 hitters - Andruw and Chipper Jones, Wally Joyner and Brian Jordan - went 1-for-15 in a 2-0 loss to Pittsburgh on Thursday.

On deck: Colorado and Arizona will try again today after being rained out in Denver yesterday. But the rain was welcome, given wildfires in the state.
