Quote: "I'm going to go home tonight and be with my wife and my kid. I miss home. There's nothing better than when you go home. I'll probably get a glass of wine with my wife."

-- Sammy Sosa of the Cubs after his team completed a 10-game road trip with a 3-7 record.

It's a fact: Teams have scored at least 10 runs at Coors Field 23 times this season, including seven games in which both teams did it.

Who's hot: The Mets' Orel Hershiser is 3-0 with a 2.74 ERA his last four starts.

Who's not: The Braves' Bret Boone is hitting just .154 in June.

On deck: The Mets, who trail the first-place Braves by three games in the NL East, play six of the next 10 games with Atlanta, including a three-game series that begins tonight.
