Brewers: Milwaukee began its six-game road trip with the most road wins in the majors (31), but has lost the first four games on the trip. All of Scott Karl's wins have come on the road. He's 0-5 at home.

Cubs: Henry Rodriguez was a last-minute scratch with a lower back strain. He hasn't played since leaving Friday night's game with a bruised right rib.

Mets: John Olerud stole the second base of the season and eighth of his career in the third inning.

Phillies: Scott Rolen missed his sixth straight game with a lower back strain. He took batting practice before the game, reported no pain and could return to the lineup as early as today. NL hits leader Doug Glanville got the night off.

Pirates: Pittsburgh had gone five straight games without a homer before Brant Brown hit one in the second.
