June 09, 1999

Quote: "If you don't pitch real well here, they'll hurt you." -- manager Gene Lamont, whose Pirates have given up seven home runs in Tiger Stadium in two games

It's a fact: Despite being 12th in the NL with a .263 team batting average, the Giants have scored more runs than every NL team except the Diamondbacks.

Who's hot: Cincinnati has only lost two of its past 12 series.

Who's not: The Brewers' Rich Becker, a .338 career hitter vs. the Indians, struck out four times last night.

On deck: Pedro Martinez of the Red Sox, who won the 1997 NL Cy Young Award with the Expos, faces his former team tonight.
