Hot corner


Quote: "We've come back several times to win games, but it just seems like every time it starts coming together it falls apart again on us." -- Brad Fullmer of the Expos, who fell 16 games under .500.

It's a fact: The last time the Red Sox played the Phillies in Philadelphia was in the 1915 World Series. The Phillies won the first game, but the Red Sox won the next four to get the championship.

Who's hot: The Red Sox's Nomar Garciaparra has a 16-game hitting streak.

Who's not: In their past three games, the Pirates have given up 10 runs in the first inning.

On deck: Denny Neagle will start today's game for the Braves rather than John Smoltz. Neagle, who will work on three days' rest, requested the move so he can attend the Friday funeral of a longtime family friend.
