Quote: "I've always said batting practice is overrated." - Mark McGwire, who didn't take batting practice in Pittsburgh and hit a 444-foot homer in the first inning

It's a fact: The Rockies failed to steal a base for the first time in nine games.

Who's hot: The Giants' Terrell Lowery went 5-for-6 and is 12-for-19 in six games since being recalled from Triple-A.

Who's not: The Astros' Jose Lima, a 21-game winner last year, has allowed 19 home runs in nine starts.

On deck: The Dodgers will play 20 of their next 26 games at Dodger Stadium, and three of the six road games are scheduled in Anaheim.
