Hot corner


Quote: "If they want to walk Mark [McGwire], I can drive in a lot of runs he's not." -- Cardinals' Brian Jordan, who is hitting .515 with 11 RBIs in his past nine games while opponents pitch around McGwire.

It's a fact: Reds pitcher David Weathers flipped his glove into the Cinergy Field stands as he walked off the field after the Cubs' five-run sixth. He asked for it back, and the fans complied.

Who's hot: The Astros' Moises Alou is 16-for-32 in a nine-game hitting streak.

Who's not: The Reds' Sean Casey is in an 0-for-21 slump.

On deck: Diamondbacks starter Willie Blair (0-7), signed to an $11.5 million, three-year contract during the off-season, goes for his first win tonight.
