September 27, 1996

Mets: Lance Johnson's three hits brought his National League-leading total to 225, the most by an NL player since Pete Rose's 230 in 1979. Johnson's sixth-inning triple gave him 21 for the season, the most in the league since 1930, when Adam Comorosky had 23 for the Pirates.

Astros: With 734 runs scored, Houston needs just 14 runs the last three games to break the club mark set last season.

Cubs: Finished 33-48 on the road, their first losing road record since 1992, when they were 35-46.
