It's a fact: The Reds' Barry Larkin has the most at-bats without a grand slam (5,927) among active players.

Who's hot: The Expos' Vladimir Guerrero has three more RBIs (48) than he had at the All-Star break last year and is on pace to drive in a franchise-record 130.

Who's not: In five games since coming back from the disabled list, the Giants' Barry Bonds is 1-for-17.

On deck: The Cubs will play 26 of 35 games on the road leading up to the All-Star break.
