Hot Corner


Quote: "He's a poor man's Greg Maddux, and he's smart. I can't see why he's struggling." -- Pirates' Al Martin on the Giants' Mark Gardner.

It's a fact: No opposing pitcher has a complete game against the Phillies since the Dodgers' Carlos Perez did it on Sept. 2, 1998.

Who's hot: In his past four starts, the Braves' Kevin Millwood is 3-0 with a 1.09 ERA.

Who's not: The Cubs are 5-22 this month with three games left; their previous worst August was 8-21 in 1921.

On deck: Rick Ankiel, touted as the top pitching prospect in baseball, makes his second start for the Cardinals today.
