It's a fact: Vladimir Guerrero is the first Montreal player to hit 30 or more homers in consecutive years.

Who's hot: Since the 1998 All-Star break, the Rockies' Larry Walker is batting .374 (221-for-591).

Who's not: The Phillies are 4-10 without Curt Schilling.

On deck: The Cardinals' Kent Bottenfield and the Astros' Mike Hampton go for their NL-leading 17th victories tonight.
