Hot corner


Quote: "Carl's hitting breaking balls, he's hitting fastballs, he's hitting everything to all fields."

-- Astros manager Larry Dierker on Carl Everett, who went 4-for-4 yesterday.

It's a fact: The Reds' Greg Vaughn drove in a pair of runs, becoming the first Cincinnati player to reach 100 RBIs in 10 years.

Who's hot: The Astros have won 10 straight.

Who's not: The Marlins committed three errors yesterday.

On deck: Mike Hampton (19-3) attempts to join Astros teammate Jose Lima as the only 20-game winners in the NL. The Phillies counter with ace Curt Schilling (15-6).
