NL hot corner

July 31, 2000

Quote: "It's kind of like getting in early on an IPO - immediate returns." - New York Mets manager Bobby Valentine on ex-Oriole Mike Bordick and Bubba Trammell both hitting homers in their first Mets at-bats.

It's a fact: Only Phil Niekro (226) has more victories with Atlanta than Tom Glavine (200).

Who's hot: Atlanta's Javy Lopez batted .405 (30-for-74) with 22 RBIs in July.

Who's not: Arizona reliever Byung-Hyun Kim was optioned to Triple-A Tucson after blowing his third consecutive save Saturday. He had an ERA of 15.20 over his past 5 1/3 innings.

On deck: Darryl Kile will go for his 13th win tonight as the Cardinals face the Montreal Expos.
