NL hot corner

June 22, 2000

Quote: "I've felt really good at the plate the last week or so. When I'm getting my pitch, I haven't been missing it." - The Braves' Chipper Jones, who had a pair of two-run homers against the Cubs Tuesday night.

It's a fact: The Dodgers and Astros are the only two NL teams with five players who have 10 or more home runs each.

Who's hot: Entering last night's game, former Oriole Jeffrey Hammonds had a 17-game hitting streak.

Who's not: Including Tuesday night's loss to the Padres, the Diamondbacks have gone 5-11 since June 2.

On deck: The league's top two home run hitters square off tonight as Barry Bonds and the Giants visit Mark McGwire and the Cardinals.
