It's a fact: The Reds have drawn 30,000 for their past four home games, their first such streak since 1994.

Who's hot: The Marlins' Kevin Millar is batting .477 (31-for-65) with runners in scoring position.

Who's not: The Dodgers' Ismael Valdes lost for the ninth time in his past 12 starts, although he has a 3.05 ERA over that span.

On deck: Dodgers bullpen coach Rick Dempsey, who received a 17-day suspension from the NL for his role in a bench-clearing brawl the day before the All-Star break, is eligible to resume his duties today.
