Hot corner


Quote: "You hit a ball to center field at Wrigley Field, unless you're Sammy Sosa, you keep running until the umpire tells you to stop." -- Cubs' Tyler Houston, who hit two homers into the wind for his first multihomer game.

It's a fact: The Brewers lost for only the second time in 14 Friday games this season.

Who's hot: The Reds' Barry Larkin is 7-for-14 in his past four games.

Who's not: The Diamondbacks have committed 11 errors in 10 games.

On deck: The Padres expect a sellout crowd of more than 60,000 for a post-game fireworks show tonight, which is 19,000 more than would fit in the new ballpark that the Padres want built downtown.
