HOT: HOTLANTA

This is an article from the April 22, 2013 issue

The Nats were supposed to run away with the East, but no one told the Braves, who had nine straight W's in their 11--1 start. Your clubhouse leader? Justin Upton, duh. Through Sunday the outfielder led the bigs in homers (seven), slugging (.891), OPS (1.306) and total bases (41).

NOT: JANGLED SPURS

It's spring—which means it's time for Tottenham to tank. The Lilywhites have lost three of four to drop to fifth in the Premier League (and out of Champions League qualification), and last Thursday they were bounced from Europa on a shootout miss by Emmanuel Adebayor.

HOT: WAIN'S ALL RIGHT

Cardinals righty Adam Wainright struck out 12 Brewers and walked none in a four-hit, complete-game 8--0 victory, while going 3 for 3 at the plate. It was the first time in the modern era that a pitcher had at least three hits while fanning 12 or more without issuing a walk.

NOT: STAR-CROSSED L.A.

Within 24 hours, Dodgers ace Zack Greinke, signed for $147 million, broke his left clavicle in a brawl with the Padres (out at least two months) and Kobe Bryant (above), trying to lead the Lakers to an eighth straight playoff berth, tore his left Achilles (out for at least six months).

HOT: THINKING CAPS

Washington (23-17-2) blew a 5--1 lead to Tampa Bay last Saturday, but an OT goal by defenseman Mike Green (above) gave the Capitals a 6--5 win, their seventh straight. Said captain Alex Ovechkin, who scored his NHL-leading 27th goal, "It's good lessons right now for us."
