NL hot corner

June 21, 2000

Quote: "There was one Wrigley Field when I played. Now there's what, 10? Four or five in the National League." - Hall of Famer Mike Schmidt on the proliferation of home runs in smaller ballparks

It's a fact: The Marlins' Mike Lowell is hitting .404 in day games, as compared with .200 at night.

Who's hot: The Expos have an National League-leading 142 doubles.

Who's not: The Brewers' Charlie Hayes is mired in an 0-for-19 skid after going hitless in four at-bats on Monday.

On deck: The visiting Padres, who have yet to face another NL West club, play the Diamondbacks for the 13th time in their first 70 games.
