Quote: "That's the way they play this game. When you don't do good, they put somebody in your spot." -- third baseman Aramis Ramirez, who was optioned by the Pirates to Triple-A Nashville after hitting .180 and making four errors

It's a fact: On the same day fellow "Nasty Boy" Norm Charlton was released by the Reds, former reliever Rob Dibble led the singing of "Take Me Out To The Ballgame" at Wrigley Field.

Who's hot: Cardinals' Fernando Tatis has a 13-game hitting streak.

Who's not: The Reds' Pete Harnisch has given up six homers in 25 innings.
