Quote: "The way he's hitting home runs, he could break the record next year."

Hank Aaron, on whether Mark McGwire could break his career record of 755 home runs It's a fact: The Cubs' Andrew Lorraine pitched a three-hitter in his major-league debut, the longest outing of his 26-game pro career, which includes 10 starts.

Who's hot: Pirates pinch hitters are 12-for-31 (.387) since the All-Star break after batting .183 before the break.

Who's not: Jose Jimenez has allowed 13 earned runs over 12 innings in his last three starts. The Cardinals are 7-16 when he starts.

On deck: The Brewers will honor Robin Yount before today's game. Yount was one of the inductees last month into the Baseball Hall of Fame.
