NL hot corner


Quote: "A double headache, that's what we call it." - Atlanta pitcher John Burkett after Wednesday night's four-plus inning rainout, setting up yesterday's doubleheader in Miami against the Marlins.

It's a fact: Dick Butkus, the former Chicago Bears middle linebacker and NFL Hall of Famer who will coach the new Chicago XFL franchise, sang during the seventh-inning stretch of yesterday's Cubs game in Chicago.

Who's hot: Milwaukee's Jeff D'Amico won his fourth consecutive start with a 6-0 shutout of Pittsburgh on Wednesday.

Who's not: Despite yesterday's win, Montreal has lost eight of 10 games; Colorado now has lost 13 of 15.

On deck: Mike Piazza and the Mets look to make up ground in the NL East against Chipper Jones and the Braves tonight at Turner Field.
