May 29, 1999

Astros: Paul Bako has hits in all 12 starts since his April 26 minor-league call-up.

Cardinals: Lance Painter made his first start since 1996, when he was with the Rockies. He allowed two runs and four hits in four innings. He had gone 127 relief outings before making the start.

Cubs: With Mark McGwire in town, there were nearly 250 media representatives covering the game, three times the normal turnout.

Marlins: Cliff Floyd picked a proper night in which to homer. It was a give-away night at the ballpark, with fans getting Cliff Floyd pins.

Pirates: Mike Williams, who had only one career save before this season, pitched the ninth inning for his ninth save.

Reds: Outfielder Greg Vaughn sat out his fourth straight game with a lower abdominal strain.
