Hot corner


Quote: "I know he's an honorable man. He's a guy that might be in the Hall of Fame, and I'm a little bit lesser than that. And I have the right to believe that he hit Vladimir Guerrero purposely. If I'm wrong, I've already asked God for forgiveness."

It's a fact: Arizona's Mike Morgan got his first save in nine years as the Diamondbacks beat Philadelphia, 11-3, Wednesday night.

Who's hot: Pirates third baseman Aramis Ramirez had five consecutive hits over two games until lining out to right field in the sixth inning yesterday.

Who's not: Sammy Sosa continued his early slump by going 0-for-4 yesterday with two strikeouts, and he is 2-for-19 overall.

On deck: Sosa and the Cubs visit Ken Griffey and the Reds tonight.
