Hot corner


Quote: "Whenever I get a hit, I think it's kind of lucky. I knew I had only one chance I hit the ball and it went in a really good place." -- Colorado pitcher Masato Yoshii, who hit a two-run single in a winning cause yesterday.

It's a fact: In the Rockies-Reds game in Denver, neither team hit a homer, only the 18th time that has happened in Coors Field's six-year history.

Who's hot: Colorado's Todd Helton has hit safely in all nine games this season.

Who's not: The Braves are 1-9 in their last 10 games at Wrigley Field, and have lost 12 of their last 14 with the Cubs.

On deck: Mets manager Bobby Valentine said Glendon Rusch will make his long-awaited debut on the mound Saturday instead of Sunday.
