Brewers: In five games against the Reds this season, Milwaukee has given up 36 earned runs in 43 innings.

XTC Cardinals: Ray Lankford has 10 homers since the All-Star break.

Cubs: Sammy Sosa, with 139 hits, Mickey Morandini (136) and Mark Grace (132) are on a pace to exceed 175 hits this season. The last time Chicago had three players do so was in 1966, when Glenn Beckert had 188 hits, Billy Williams had 179 and Ron Santo 175.

Giants: The five home runs given up were the most since a June 23, 1997, game against the Padres.

Mets: John Olerud is two short of tying Hubie Brooks' club record 24-game hitting streak set in 1984. Todd Hundley, a lifetime .407 hitter at Coors Field, struck out four times.
