NL hot corner


Quote: "He has a Cy Young for every room in his house. What a master he is."

- Florida manager John Boles, after watching the Braves' Greg Maddux pitch his second straight shutout, facing only 29 Marlins on Wednesday.

It's a fact: Luis Castillo got his 54th infield hit this season Wednesday, tops in the majors.

Who's hot: San Francisco's Barry Bonds, with homers in three straight games, including his career-high 47th.

Who's not: Chicago is 6-22 in its past 28 games. Also, Cubs pitchers have given up 214 home runs, seven shy of last year's team-record 221.

On deck: Atlanta's Tom Glavine (19-7) vs. Arizona's Randy Johnson (17-6), leading candidates for the NL Cy Young Award, tonight at 10:05 in Phoenix.
