Quote: "If he's got six or seven starts left this year, I want them to be here."

-- Phillies manager Terry Francona on the idea of Curt Schilling making minor-league rehab starts. It's a fact: Last night, the Braves became the last NL team to lose 50 games.

Who's hot: The Reds are 10-2-2 in their 14 series since the All-Star break.

Who's not: The Rockies' Pedro Astacio has given up 12 earned runs in 4 2/3 innings in his past two starts, both against the Pirates.

On deck: In a possible playoff preview, the Astros' Jose Lima goes for his NL-leading 18th victory against the Mets tonight.
