Hot corner


Quote: "Aw, man, and he's the guy I came to see." -- Brewers fan Lisa Cheryl, on hearing that popular outfielder Geoff Jenkins had been sent to the minors before the game.

It's a fact: The Pirates' Kevin Young hit into two double plays, both of them on fly balls to the outfield.

Who's hot: The Giants' Robb Nen converted his 18th straight save opportunity for his league-leading 22nd.

Who's not: During their past seven games, the Reds have been outscored, 44-19, and have hit only .228 (56-for-246).

On deck: Jeff Bagwell needs one homer for 200 as an Astro, which would make him the second player in club history to reach that number. Jimmy Wynn hit 223.
