Hot corner


Quote: "This is the greatest place I ever played." -- Don Sutton, in Milwaukee to throw out the first pitch for the Braves' first visit since leaving after the 1965 season.

It's a fact: The Mets are 8-2 against Pittsburgh in Shea Stadium the past two seasons but are only 2-4 in Three Rivers Stadium.

Who's hot: The Pirates' Jason Schmidt has given up 11 runs and 36 hits in 42 2/3 innings over his past six starts, winning five.

Who's not: The Rockies' Mike Lansing is in a 12-for-83 slump (.145).

On deck: Highly touted 22-year-old Expos prospect Carl Pavano goes against one of his idols, Curt Schilling (5-5), today. The two faced each other in Pavano's first big-league start May 23. Pavano wound up with a no-decision, while Schilling was the losing pitcher.
