Hot corner


Quote: "It was the most excited I've ever been on the baseball field." -- Mike Lieberthal after his pinch-hit, three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth Tuesday night capped a seven-run rally and lifted the Phillies to an 8-7 win over the Pirates.

It's a fact: The Brewers have hit at least one home run in their last 14 games.

Who's hot: The Phillies' Doug Glanville went 2-for-4, extending his hitting streak to 17 games.

Who's not: The Padres' Kevin Brown gave up two homers in a span of seven pitches in the ninth inning of the Padres' win over the Dodgers Tuesday. He had allowed only two home runs in the previous 113 innings.

On deck: Former Cub Ryne Sandberg will be the guest singer today at Wrigley Field during the seventh-inning stretch. Chicago Bulls Steve Kerr and Ron Harper will take their turns next week.
