National League

July 02, 2000

Quote: "It gets to the point where you're not surprised. When you get nine runs and 15 hits, most of the time you're going to win." -- manager Larry Dierker of the Astros, who did but lost, as usual

It's a fact: Reliever Vincente Padilla became the third Diamondbacks player last week to get a hit in his first major-league at-bat.

Who's hot: Despite not joining the Phillies until May 24, Pat Burrell ranks in the top five for NL rookies in homers, RBIs and total bases.

Who's not: Braves left-hander Tom Glavine got off to a 7-1, 2.94 start. Since then, he's 0-4 with a 4.97 ERA.

On deck: The Cardinals' Darryl Kile goes for his 12th victory today, facing the Astros.
