Hot corner


Quote: "I think we're drained, and it definitely showed. We had no enthusiasm. The trip's been tough. It's good to go home." -- second baseman Mark Grudzielanek, whose Dodgers lost four straight after opening their seven-game road trip with three-game sweep.

It's a fact: The Cubs' Sammy Sosa has seven homers. He didn't hit his seventh last season until May 8.

Who's hot: Cardinals catcher Mike Matheny has thrown out 12 of 17 (70.6 percent) attempted base-stealers this season.

Who's not: The Astros have lost nine of 12 at their new ballpark, Enron Field.

On deck: The Brewers, who completed a 2-7 trip, have played 16 of their first 22 games on the road. They begin a 10-game homestand today.
