It's a fact: The Rockies' Vinny Castilla hit his 100th homer yesterday at Coors Field, the most of any player.

Who's hot: Giants starters are 9-3 with a 3.22 ERA over the last 18 games.

Who's not: Rockies right-hander John Thomson has lost eight straight decisions since a win on Aug. 23. After yesterday's loss, he was demoted to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

On deck: Two division leaders -- the Astros and the Giants -- begin a three-game series tomorrow in Houston.
