Quote: "I just like the idea of me going out and doing a good job without a whole lot of hoopla." -- Mets' John Olerud, whose .351 batting average is second in NL only to Larry Walker's .360.

It's a fact: The Brewers closed their home season having drawn 1,811,548 fans, their highest total since 1992.

Who's hot: The Braves have won 11 of their last 13 games, including six of seven on the road.

Who's not: The Marlins' Kirt Ojala has lost three straight starts and seven of his last eight decisions.

On deck: The Cubs, tied with the Mets for the NL wild-card lead with three games remaining for each, send Kevin Tapani (19-8) against the Astros.
