Quote: "That was a dumb mistake by me. I'll see it about 20 times on "SportsCenter," so I'll try not to watch TV tonight." -- Cardinals pitcher Darren Oliver, who gave up Sammy Sosa's 44th homer on a 2-0 pitch

It's a fact: In just over two seasons with the Cardinals, Mark McGwire is 10th on the team's career homer list with 141.

Who's hot: Since his loss to Cleveland on June 12, the Reds' Pete Harnisch is 7-0 in 11 starts with a 3.27 ERA.

Who's not: In three starts with the Cubs since being acquired from the Braves at the trade deadline, Micah Bowie has allowed 16 earned runs in 14 2/3 innings.

On deck: Livan Hernandez, who starts today for the Giants against the Mets, was 0-4 with a 6.75 ERA against New York this season while pitching for the Marlins.
